Description

Part of the Oxford Literary Festival, 2014. 

Carolyne Larrington and Diane Purkiss talk about Magical Tales, the book accompanying last summer's record-breaking Bodleian exhibition, Magical Books: From the Middle Ages to Middle Earth. Hear how the medieval literature studied in Oxford by some of the world's best-loved children's authors inspired magical landscapes and mythic beings in their fiction. The wolves of winter; the ancient book holding hidden secrets, medieval traditions continue to delight and enthral.
