Invitation to World Literature produced by WGBH Foundation
From Gilgamesh to Gogol, the world has been enriched by the writings of gifted people from a wide range of cultural traditions and regions of the world.
This remarkable series from the Annenberg Media organization provides a nice introduction to "great epics, plays, poetry, and other literary texts." It includes testimony and commentary from scholars, artists, writers, and translators. The thirteen programs include "The Odyssey," "My Name is Red," "Popol Vuh," and "Candide."
Visitors can view each program in its entirety and then move on to the complete series site, which includes teaching materials and activities. While all of the episodes are well-done, visitors may wish to start by viewing the episodes dedicated to "The Thousand and One Nights" and Gabriel Garcia Marquez's "One Hundred Years of Solitude," which are particularly fine.
