Kit and 3 other people liked Bob Wake's review of Ravelstein:
Ravelstein by Saul Bellow
"[Reviewed in 2000]

Perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised that Saul Bellow at 84 has written a novel as graceful and funny as Ravelstein. But who could have predicted that he would also stir up a hornets’ nest of controversy? The character of Abe Ravels..." Read more of this review »

Augustine of Hippo
“Once for all, then, a short precept is given thee: Love, and do what thou wilt: whether thou hold thy peace, through love hold thy peace; whether thou cry out, through love cry out; whether thou correct, through love correct; whether thou spare, through love do thou spare: let the root of love be within, of this root can nothing spring but what is good.”
Augustine of Hippo, Homilies on the First Epistle of John

Michael Longley
“I would insist that poetry is a normal human activity and its proper concern all the things that happen to people.”
Michael Longley

Rainer Maria Rilke
“That is at bottom the only courage that is demanded of us: to have courage for the most strange, the most singular and the most inexplicable that we may encounter.

To say nothing of God.”
Rainer Maria Rilke
