"History should sound less like newspaper editorials and more like poetry."
In his lecture, Simon Schama illustrates with great passion what historians should accomplish to captivate the common reader, the student and the professional. For if we do not cherish our past, and pass on the chain of memory, we might encounter the cultural lobotomy presented in Orwell’s ’1984’.
