Saint Augustines Memory by Garry Wills

Garry Willss sizzling (The New York Review of Books) renditions of Saint Augustines prose in his Penguin Lives biography of the great thinker foreshadowed his translation of Saint Augustines Childhood, the first book in Augustines Confessiones. Now, in Saint Augustines Memory, Wills brings his superb gifts of language and intellect to this important chapter. Acting as the hinge volume of Augustines confessional opus, Saint Augustines Memory makes the turn between the writers life before and after baptism and stands as a meditation on the Confessioness central concept. Here in private, Augustine seeks to fathom himself-to emerge later as a visionary for others on a large public stage. To him the vast treasure store of memory is where identity is forged, the context of present and future in which we continually relive original experience and refashion everything we remember. It is a place where we remake ourselves, interact with others, and glimpse God. Masterfully rendered and beautifully designed, Saint Augustines Memoryis sure to fascinate academics, Christians, and the general reader.
