From the Back Cover:

Old Age is a territory that most of us can expect to enter and brave, however tentatively. In this anthology, Wayne Booth has selected, and has been inspired by, the works of some of our greatest writers--Shakespeare, Emily Bronte, Walt Whitman, and many more--on the art of growing older. Profound, witty, shrewd, compassionate, but never sentimental, he deals candidly with losses, fears, and lamentations, but then dwells on not just the consolations but the reasons for celebration.

About the Author:

Wayne C. Booth (1921–2005) was the George Pullman Distinguished Service Professor at the University of Chicago. His many books include The Rhetoric of Fiction, A Rhetoric of Irony, The Power and Limits of Pluralism, The Vocation of a Teacher, and Forthe Love of It, all published by the University of Chicago Press.
