It’s always exhilarating for a bibliophile to stumble upon captivating content related to literature, books, or a combination of both.
Such is the case with James Payne’s recently launched YouTube channel, titled “Great Books Explained”. This channel follows in the footsteps of the notorious “Great Art Explained” known for its approachable presentations of notable paintings and sculptures, delivered in a language free from the jargon of the art world.
“Great Books Explained” shares a common objective with its artistic counterpart, as James Payne articulates: “Fifteen minutes, clear and concise language, devoid of outlandish theories—just a genuine passion for books and the joy of reading.”
The inaugural video, delving into James Joyce’s literary masterpiece, “Ulysses,” has recently been released, promising a thoughtful exploration of this iconic work.
