Rewriting Venice

Friday 2 July 2004 20:15-20:55 (Radio 3)

Tonight's Twenty Minutes explores how four of Thomas Mann's peers - Byron, Marcel Proust, Henry James and Ezra Pound - have looked at Venice through prisms of their own making.

In Rewriting Venice, Graham Fawcett describes the times and places in the city linked to these men, and using their novels, poems, articles and letters as illustration, he asks why writers have so often chosen not to look Venice in the face. With readings.

Duration:

40 minutes
