David Denby returned to Columbia University and re-enrolled in two core courses in Western civilization to confront the literary and philosophical masterpieces-the "great books"- that are now at the heart of the culture wars. In Great Books, he leads us on a glorious tour, a rediscovery and celebration of such authors as Homer and Boccaccio, Locke and Nietzsche, Conrad and Woole. The resulting personal odyssey is an engaging blend of self-dicscovery, for anyone in love with the written word.
