Description
Here Nicholas Basbanes—the author of Patience and Fortitude and Among the Gently Mad, and deemed by David McCullough to be "our leading author of books about books"—considers books that have, as he says, "made things happen" in the world. These are works that have both nudged the course of history and fired the imagination of such influential figures as John Milton, Isaac Newton, Frederick Douglass, Henry James, Helen Keller, and the more notorious minds of the Marquis de Sade and Adolf Hitler. Basbanes also looks at his contemporaries—Harold Bloom, Robert Fagles, Helen Vendler, and Elaine Pagels—and offers insight on literary canons and classic works in translation.
