Read­ing: a very short intro­duc­tion
Today many peo­ple take read­ing for grant­ed, but we remain some way off from attain­ing lit­er­a­cy for the glob­al human pop­u­la­tion. And whilst we think we know what read­ing is, it remains in many ways a mys­te­ri­ous process, or set of process­es. The effects of read­ing are myr­i­ad: it can be infor­ma­tive, dis­tract­ing, mov­ing, erot­i­cal­ly arous­ing, polit­i­cal­ly moti­vat­ing, spir­i­tu­al, and much, much more. At dif­fer­ent times and in dif­fer­ent places read­ing means dif­fer­ent things.
In this Very Short Intro­duc­tion Belin­da Jack explores the fas­ci­nat­ing his­to­ry of lit­er­a­cy, and the oppor­tu­ni­ties read­ing opens. For much of human his­to­ry read­ing was the pre­serve of the elite, and most read­ing meant being read to. Inno­va­tions in print­ing, paper-mak­ing, and trans­port, com­bined with the rise of pub­lic edu­ca­tion from the late eigh­teenth cen­tu­ry on, brought a dra­mat­ic rise in lit­er­a­cy in many parts of the world. Estab­lished links between a nation’s lev­els of lit­er­a­cy and its econ­o­my led to the pro­mo­tion of read­ing for polit­i­cal ends. But, equal­ly, read­ing has been asso­ci­at­ed with sub­ver­sive ideas, lead­ing to cen­sor­ship through mul­ti­ple chan­nels: deny­ing access to edu­ca­tion, con­trol­ling pub­lish­ing, destroy­ing libraries, and even the burn­ing of authors and their works. Indeed, the works of Voltaire were so often burned that an enter­pris­ing Parisian pub­lish­er pro­duced a fire-proof edi­tion, dec­o­rat­ed with a phoenix. But, as Jack demon­strates, read­ing is a col­lab­o­ra­tive act between an author and a read­er, and one which can nev­er be whol­ly con­trolled. Telling the sto­ry of read­ing, from the ancient world to dig­i­tal read­ing and restric­tions today, Belin­da Jack explores why it is such an impor­tant aspect of our soci­ety.
