Professor Brad Pasanek discusses the history and future of the book

Professor Brad Pasanek talked to Ploughshares Literary Magazine as part of their "People of the Book" series, a series of interviews charting an informal ethnography of the book. Pasanek fielded questions ranging from how he defines a book to his most unusual interaction with books, in addition to discussing his own book, Metaphors of Mind: An Eighteenth-Century Dictionary, forthcoming from Johns Hopkins University Press. Pasanek's work, part monograph and part database, will digest thousands of metaphors of mind from eighteenth-century English literature.
