Seven Brief Lessons on Language is Jonathan Dunne's fourth book on language. He has previously published The DNA of the English Language (2007), an introduction to word connections; The Life of a Translator (2013), which looks at coincidence in translation; and Stones Of Ithaca (2019), a study of the relationship between language and the environment, which uses the example of stones from the beaches of the Greek island of Ithaca. He has recorded a sixteen-part video course on the spiritual content of language called Theological English, which is available to watch on Vimeo and YouTube. Jonathan is a graduate in Classics from Oxford University. He has translated more than seventy books from the Bulgarian, Catalan, Galician and Spanish languages for publishing houses such as Penguin Random House, New Directions and Shearsman Books. He lives with his family in Sofia and serves as a subdeacon in the Bulgarian Orthodox Church. For more information, please visit his personal website: www.stonesofithaca.com.
