9780262691147: Persons And Places: Fragments of Autobiography

Philosopher, poet, critic of culture and literature, and best-selling novelist, George Santayana (1863-1952) stands as a major figure in American philosophy and literature. This new edition of his autobiography restores passages that were deleted in the original book because of the publisher's sensitivities about lawsuits, printing and production convenience, a general desire by editors to "soften" some of his remarks, and his own request that portions be published only after his death.

Santayana's marginal notes, idiosyncratic punctuation, and use of British spelling, reveal a stubbornly aloof and scrupulously remote observer. The eloquence of this detachment is fully brought forth in the rich language and smoothly ironic recollections of Persons and Places.

William G. Holzberger is Professor of English at Bucknell University. Herman J. Saatkamp, Jr. is Professor and Head, Department of Philosophy and Humanities, Texas A&M University.

About the Author:

William G. Holzberger is Professor of English Emeritus at Bucknell University.

From Library Journal:

This first volume of the projected 19-volume definitive edition of Santayana's works includes three autobiographical books: Persons and Places, The Middle Span, and My Host the World. Material omitted in past editions (including remarks on Spinoza, John Russell, and Lionel Johnson and 718 marginal headings) is at last restored, and a useful introduction focuses on key events in Santayana's life that led to his sense of himself as "the inveterate stranger." While all this material is a boon to scholars, general readers will most appreciate the ease and insight of these memoirs, the philosophical reflections, the remarks on interesting personalities, and the portrait of turn-of-the-century America.
