    REVIEW Moral Imagination 107 Moral ImaginationInteresting although It is a collection of essays than a book with a thesis I found very interesting the chapter on Lincoln and the darker sides of ambition More for a literature adept than someone with interests in political philosophy such as myself

    REVIEW Moral Imagination 107 Moral ImaginationBromwich is a remarkably deep thinker on the literary element inherent in US political life which for me is crucial to understanding how both literature and politics work here His two essays here on Lincoln's writings are wonderful in and of themselves but crucially they point toward something too often overlooked the impact on US fiction and poetry of the red letter immortality of some of our political writing Jefferson Lincoln the Federalist Papers Douglass Emerson Thoreau Dubois James Baldwin all of these are writerswritings whose greatness is indivisble from political imagina
