Hada's First

I think everyone should read The Educated Imagination by Northrop Frye [that's Frye in the image at right].

Frye, of course, is most famous for his Anatomy of Criticism which pops up every time one does research in literature. But this little book is more basic, yet it touches us all in the origins of thoughtful expression. It gives both generalist and specialist a handy, enjoyable understanding, even apologia, for what it is we do in the world of letters and the life of the mind.
