For the Love of Literature free pdf A largely unnoticed component of the current educational, social, and even ecological, crisis lies hidden in the decline in the value accorded to what we rightly call the "humanities". The study of the living words of great literature -- Homer, Dante, Chaucer, Shakespeare, the Romantic poets, the Russian novelists -- no longer forms the basis of the curriculum of the human soul. Marginalized, politicized, and devalued, the imagination is disparaged and young people are fed instead a monotonous diet of information, scientism, and technological know-how. These things are certainly useful, and perhaps even necessary to our survival, but when they become the foundation of education, the result is an assault on what it means to be a human being.

The present collection of essays seeks to address this situation from the point of view of Waldorf education. Built around the work of Christy MacKaye Barnes, a master teacher of English, For the Love of Literature focuses on general themes -- such as the training of imagination, speech and poetry through the study of great authors -- as well as on particular authors and texts. The writers include many of the great first-generation English teachers in the Waldorf movement: Adam Bittleston, L. Francis Edmunds, A. C. Harwood, Isabel Wyatt, and Hugh Hetherington.

This is an exciting book: a living testament to its subject and essential reading for anyone interested in the Waldorf curriculum. For the Love of Literature should also find a place in the library of anyone interested in fine writing and the deeper meaning of great literature.
