Reading for Pleasure

‘Reading for pleasure’ and its 2,000 year history, often dominated by suspicion and distrust.

What do we mean by ‘reading for pleasure’? Why has novel-reading by women long been associated with eroticism? This lecture will be illustrated by images of readers from Ancient Rome to the present day.
