主讲人介绍:

Daniel Albright (born October 29, 1945) is the Ernest Bernbaum Professor of Literature at Harvard University. He’s particularly interested in the ways in which artistic media–poetry, music, painting–interact with one another; in 2000 his book Untwisting the Serpent: Music, Literature, and the Visual Arts won the Susanne M. Glasscock Humanities Book Prize for Interdisciplinary Scholarship. At Harvard he teaches two Core Curriculum courses: the first called Putting Modernism Together, which studies (for example) Impressionism through works by Monet, Debussy, and Joseph Conrad, or Surrealism through works by Apollinaire, Stravinsky, and Magritte; the second is The History of the English Language. He also teaches courses on opera, drama, Victorian and Modernist poetry and fiction, and the relation of physics to literature.
