Summary:
"In Writing on the Tablet of the Heart, David Carr explores a new model for the production, revision, and reception of ancient texts.

The Gilgamesh epic, Homer's Iliad, and the Bible, he shows, were first and foremost intended as educational texts.

The primary focus was not on writing such texts on tablets or papyrus, but inscribing hallowed writings, word for word, on the hearts of elite members of society."--Jacket.  Read more...
