Jean-Jacques Rousseau wrote “Man is born free, but he is everywhere in chains.” Poet Percy Shelley believed words could be stronger than shackles, and wrote poems intended to free mankind from their chains. Some have argued that poetry can do nothing--or as W.H. Auden said, "Poetry makes nothing happen." Yet Henry David Thoreau, Karl Marx, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela were inspired by Shelley's words to live in the service of freedom and dignity, and they changed the world. The Unbinding Prometheus MOOC investigates both what Shelley's words have meant over time, and what his words might mean for us today.

The study of literary texts can be dramatically enriched if one takes into account the material form in which they are presented to the reader: print or non-print, book or magazine, manuscript or film adaptation, etc. In this course, we will focus on the relationships between text and medium, more precisely between the text and the other elements that may surround it (like illustrations) or between the text and the various material forms that shape it (like the digital hypertext format).
