Description: In this intelligent and thought-provoking collection of extraordinary scope and depth, writers from Plato to Ernest Hemingway to David Foster Wallace address specific aspects of manliness -- from wisdom to chivalry to nobility.

Included here are Aristotle on courage; Sir Thomas Malory on love, honor, and chastity; Shakespeare on leadership; John Cheever on adolescence; Jane Austen on pride; and Kurt Cobain on family; while Waller R. Newell's incisive commentary places these writings in historical context. At a time when all of America is debating the wayward course of contemporary manhood, this collection offers much needed guidance and inspiration, and a path back to the wisdom of our shared tradition of manly virtues. And, for this first paperback edition, the author has selected the best of the original material from the hardcover to create a more accessible and portable volume.
