Whitney Cox on David Shulman’s “Tamil”

March 6, 2017

Faculty Fellow Whitney Cox, a principal investigator on the Imperial Interstices project, reviews David Shulman's Tamil, a "biography" of one of the world's oldest languages. "Gently humorous, frequently lyrical, and wearing great learning very lightly, the book’s prose admirably summons up what it might be like to listen to a series of lectures by a gifted teacher," Cox writes in The New York Review of Books.
