Greenblatt, The Swerve – prizes and criticisms

Swerve_TipIn_FINAL.inddJeffrey Cohen has an interesting post on Stephen Greenblatt’s The Swerve: How the World Became Modern which has been gathering prizes, including the Pulitzer and the National Book Award, and severe criticism at the same time.

I have the book, but it’s been sitting unread on a shelf for a while now. I’ll read it with open eyes now.
