What the Classics Teach Us
Bringing new life and relevance to classic stories is an art, and Robert Greene, David Brooks and Richard Gill are masters of the craft. Bestselling author Robert Greene draws on the lives of historical figures to write about modern strategy, power and seduction; novelist, poet and essayist David Brooks references Roman mythology in his new novel The Conversation, and award-winning conductor Richard Gill is renown for his contemporary take on traditional music. Alastair Blanshard from the University of Sydney leads a discussion about what the classics still teach us.
