First Paragraph

All of the world's cultures - Asian, African, Middle Eastern, European/Western Hemisphere - have fostered wisdom writing. For more than a half-century I have studied and taught the literature that emerged from monotheism and its later secularizations. Where Shall Wisdom Be Found? rises out of a personal need, reflecting a quest for sagacity that might solace and clarify the traumas of aging, of recovery from grave illness, and of grief for the loss of beloved friends.

- From Where Shall Wisdom Be Found? by Harold Bloom
