Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
This collection of essays by Hart, professor of English at Dartmouth, senior editor of National Review , and author of From This Moment On: America in Nineteen Forty ( LJ 6/15/87), covers a variety of themes, but there is a sort of subtle conservatism that ties them together. Hart writes about C.S. Lewis, Robert Frost, T.S. Eliot, G.K. Chesterton, Ernest Hemingway, Samuel Johnson, and Edmund Burke, as well as on World War II, socialism, and pornography--worn subjects, but he freshens them. Each essay is packed with evidence of the author's knowledge of literature and politics, and each is provocative. There is hardly a page that does not evoke question, rejoinder, and discussion. Hart does not exploit his loves and hatreds, but he makes them evident enough. A stimulating book for serious-minded readers.-- A.J. Anderson, Graduate Sch. of Lib. & Information Science, Simmons Coll., Boston
