Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Harvard
Since written literature existed there have always been literary exiles banished for political reasons or because their works were considered morally subversive; and there were those who were alienated from home without leaving it — Melville's Ishmaels.
Professor Levin speaks on the influence of exile on the content and style of these poets and novelists from Ovid and Dante to Ezra Pound and Nabokov.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
