BiblioFiles #46: Leadership in Literature


Training efficient, influential, or virtuous leaders seems to be a major concern in our world today, but what actually makes a good leader? Is it a list of qualities? Or is it something else? Today the BiblioFiles crew turns to the Great Books to see what the tradition's authors have to say about this issue. And we look at a whole slew of literary leaders, from Achilles to Peter Pan.
