For the Love of Literature: A Celebration of Language & Imagination
An unnoticed component of the present educational, social, and even ecological crises lies in the declining value given what we correctly call the humanities. The study of the living words of great authorsHomer, Dante, Chaucer, Shakespeare, the Romantic poets, the Russian novelistsno longer forms the basis of the education of the human soul. The imagination is disparaged, marginalized, politicized, and devalued. Young people are instead fed a monotonous diet of information, scientism, and technology. While these are certainly important and usefulmaybe even necessary to our survivalonce they become the basis for educating our children, the result is an assault on what it means to be human. Built around the work of Christy MacKaye Barnes, the themes of this collection include the training of imagination, speech, and poetry, and expanding human capacities through the study of great authors. The writers include many of the great first-generation English teachers in the Waldorf movement.
