Abstract / Synopsis
A lightly edited version of a Public Talk intended for a general audience, this essay examines significant appearances of mathematics, mathematical education, and attitudes to mathematics in, particularly, English and French literature. Both serious and light-hearted sources are considered. No attempt is made to be comprehensive.
