Download and read online The Moral of the Story in PDF and EPUB The contributors to The Moral of the Story, all preeminent political theorists, are unified by their concern with the instructive power of great literature. This thought-provoking combination of essays explores the polyvalent moral and political impact of classic world literatures on public ethics through the study of some of its major figures-including Shakespeare, Dante, Cervantes, Jane Austen, Henry James, Joseph Conrad, Robert Penn Warren, and Dostoevsky. Positing the uniqueness of literature's ability to promote dialogue on salient moral and intellectual virtues, editor Henry T. Edmonson III has culled together a wide-ranging exploration of such fundamental concerns as the abuse of authority, the nature of good leadership, the significance of 'middle class virtues' and the needs of adolescents. This collection reinvigorates the study of classic literature as an endeavor that is not only personally intellectually satisfying, but also an inimitable and unique way to enrich public discourse.

Download and read online And the Moral of the Story Is in PDF and EPUB AND THE MORAL OF THE STORY IS . . . I saw a Korean woman walking along the road carrying a bundle of sticks on her back. I thought to myself, “Life is like that.” We all carry around bundles of stories starting from our childhoods and going through the rest of our lives. Some of the stories we have forgotten and others we will never forget. Some of these stories have influenced our lives. Others have had little effect on us. In this book I have pulled from my bundle of stories to share fifty-two of them with an added moral for each one. I have heard many people who would stand and tell their stories, hoping it would help someone else along life’s journey. I hope you will find these stories interesting and the moral of each one helpful. Carl Hart has served as chaplain, pastor, teacher and administrator.
