The Social Networks in Epic Poems
Long before the advent of Facebook and Myspace, societies shared news and were connected by networks;relationships represented in history’s most treasured mythologies. Padraig Mac Carron is a graduate student at Coventry University in England, who authored a paper which examines and evaluates the social networks in some of the canon’s most famous – and not so famous -- epic poems. Word of Mouth producer Taylor Quimby spoke with Padraig from his parent’s home in Ireland.
