Few people know that Ralph Waldo Emerson had a mentally challenged brother. Now, in a deeply moving novel in letters, noted writer Philip Lee Williams imagines the last year of this brother's sad but transcendent life as he lives with a farm family in Massachusetts. Emerson's Brother shows how this brother, Bulkeley, deals in his own way with many of the themes Waldo did, including nature, self-reliance, and love. Writing letters to his brother and friends such as Henry David Thoreau, Bulkeley Emerson aches with the need to express himself, trapped as he is in the prison of his own genetics. Though Bulkeley's journey toward the end of his life can be agonizing and filled with unfilled longing, there is a quiet acceptance, too, as he nears his time to become part of nature itself.

Perhaps it was a sense of estrangement from the everyday that drew Cynthia Sorrel to the village of Cooper Patent. The failed painter was lured by the gatehouse with its seven doors, the lake with its tower, and the magical air of a place that couldn't quite decide whether it was fictional, mythic, or real. The gatehouse should have been a first clue that she was on a journey, and soon she begins to glimpse and then to pursue a figure in the woods near her house, convinced she has seen the Muse.

It is often assumed that Nikos Kazantzakis's (1883-1957) religious views were unorthodox and heretical, and therefore unworthy of a place in the history of Christian thought. We may see it as a part of a wider, Christian faith still in the making.

"Growing Wings to Overcome Gravity, inspired by a passage from Plato's Phaedrus, serves as a coda to my critical trilogy, published over a span of nearly twenty years: The Reverent Discipline (1974), The courage of Judgement (1982), and The Critic as Conservator (1992). My title here provides the encompassing poetic image-and the inspiration behind my critical intent- of ultimately overcoming the crises of modernism in which we agonize, and of attaining the promise of spiritual and moral order.
