In Garry Willss biography of Saint Augustine for the Penguin Lives series, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author brilliantly documented the life of the great Christian thinker. His translations of passages of Saint Augustines influential Confessiones were hailed as sizzling (Peter Brown, New York Review of Books). James Wood, writing for the London Review of Books declared, Augustine flourishes in Willss hand. Now, Wills has taken on a translation of the first of four books of the Confessiones, Childhood. Willss broad-ranging and incisive discussion of the style, structure, and themes of Childhood brings a fresh perspective to this classic work, including the juxtaposition of Augustines concept of childhood and the learning of language with the ideas of Noam Chomsky and current research. Beautifully designed and translated by Americas greatest living intellectual (The American Prospect), Childhood will be sought after by academics, Christians, and the general reader.
