Description
Did a whale named "Mocha Dick" inspire Melville's masterpiece? Who was the first poet to speak at a presidential inauguration? And which French-speaking high school football star shook up the literary world? From Homer to Harry Potter, from Chaucer to Charlotte's Web, this literate entry in Kenneth Davis's entertaining and irreverent series of quiz books serves up a trove of information on our most influential writers and their works. Davis and his daughter Jenny help you demystify Dracula, capture Kafka, and brush up your Bront in their inimitable Don't Know Much About style.
