For the Love of Literature A Celebration of Language and Imagination


Price: $35.95

Publisher: United States, Anthroposophic Press Inc: 1996

Seller ID: 892

ISBN: 0880104163

Illustrations A largely unnoticed component of the current educational, social, and even ecological, crisis lies hidden in the decline in the value accorded to what we rightly call the "humanities". The study of the living words of great literature -- Homer, Dante, Chaucer, Shakespeare, the Romantic poets, the Russian novelists -- no longer forms the basis of the curriculum of the human soul. Marginalized, politicized, and devalued, the imagination is disparaged and young people are fed instead a monotonous diet of information, scientism, and technological know-how. These things ...

Michael Howard reminds us that polarization is ubiquitous in our time. In the realm of language, this polarization comes to expression through synonyms and antonyms. But the world is not as black-and-white as it appears. Fortunately, language is rich in words that bridge and mediate between polar extremes. However, these words are not as prominent in our speaking and thinking as synonyms and antonyms, and for this reason, we do not apply them in our practical affairs as fully as we might. By its very title this booklet proposes 'Mesonym' as the name for ‘words in the middle, words that... View more info
