I am angry with my friend; he has betrayed a secret of mine perhaps, or maybe instead he has formed an intimacy with persons he knows to be my enemies.  I start to view his behavior as treacherous, his character as disloyal.  As I am convinced that my anger is justified, given the circumstances, ...Read More...

Occasionally, we are brought up short in our reading by a claim that is made with great confidence—even audacity—by its author, upon a point that seems to us rather dubious. Thus, F. R. Leavis, in his book New Bearings in English Poetry (1932), states: “My suggestion that Donne was ...Read More...

I suppose by now just about everything that can be said about the British riots has been said.  Every culpable feature of modern Western society – from consumerism to the welfare state – has been implicated in the devastation, with much truth on all sides.  The violence is barely ...Read More...

Allow me a moment of unrestrained avuncular pride.  I have a new little nephew, Jonathan – nearly a year-old, pudgy, bright-eyed, and the embodiment of the most perfect, most instinctive joy I have ever seen.  He is the first child born to a sibling of mine, and so now I am slowly learning ...Read More...

If there is one principle which is nearly axiomatic among our contemporaries who regard themselves as poets and critics of poetry, it is that poetry should be written in the language of the everyday. This opinion can be traced back to Wordsworth’s famous assertion that poetry ought to be composed ...Read More...

I suppose we all grow unduly annoyed at times with certain cultural foibles which are really quite trivial in comparison with the dire and momentous crises which are rapidly converging upon us.  For myself, I freely confess to experiencing a completely unreasonable fury when, each year, the unworthy ...Read More...

Allah Is Dead: Why Islam is Not a Religion by Rebecca Bynum (New English Review Press, $17.95) Readers who pick up Rebecca Bynum’s provocatively titled new book will certainly expect to find there an unflinching critique of Islam, and in this respect, Allah is Dead does not disappoint.  Those ...Read More...

Somerset, NJ. Legend has it that on the field of Hastings, as the forces of the Conqueror ascended a hill to engage the exhausted army of Harold II, a certain minstrel named Taillefer went before the ranks, tossing his sword high into the air and catching it again, all the while chanting the story of ...Read More...

I think it is unquestionable that of the two Homeric epics, it is the Iliad which is the finer work of artistry, a judgment shared by the author of On the Sublime, who likened the Odyssey to a setting sun, “whose grandeur remains without its intensity.”  That said, it is probably the ...Read More...

Somerset, NJ. Thomas Nagel's article "What is it Like to Be a Bat?"1 is undoubtedly one of the most important pieces of philosophical work completed in the last fifty years.  Taking issue with what he calls a "recent wave of reductionist euphoria," Nagel insists that the phenomenon of conscious ...Read More...
