Better Than Scholarship
When i bought GREAT BOOKS at a discount in a drugstore I thought it would be a cheap reference book. Sort of Cliffs Notes in one volume. Wrong. These chapters are penetrating insights into the modern relavance of the great writers of the Western world. Wow! The reader has to follow with pleasure the mental turnings of the author as he studies these books again. But there is more. Because David Denby opens ones own mind to rethinking what one thought about things, the reader is lifted to a new and personal perception of these great works. Grown-up people will eat this book up.
