The Beauty and Wisdom of Great Books

The Great Books and the Classics are rightly considered sources of moral, emotional, and intellectual wisdom. From Hesiod and Homer to Dante and Shakespeare, the great works of literature have nourished souls and inspired artists for three millennia. The same can be true for you! My own books, The Odyssey of Love and Finding Arcadia, are journeys across the classics and great books of the western artistic and cultural tradition. Buy your copy and take a pilgrimage through the beauty and wisdom found in our great works of literature, from Antiquity all the way up to the 19th century!

He has written on the arts, culture, classics, literature, philosophy, religion, and history for numerous journals, magazines, and newspapers. He is the author of Finding ArcadiaThe Odyssey of Love and the Politics of Plato, and a contributor to the College Lecture Today and Making Sense of Diseases and Disasters.
