Writers who adopt the structural method reviled in my study produce works so astonishing "because of our symmetrical additions" that they make almost every other critical effort appear to be the work of someone asleep. The symmetrical additions produce brilliant actions that simply make us gape in astonishment, and those actions refine their characters to make us almost gasp. The effect is an entirely new poem, play, and novel, undreampt of in our philosophies. With this, I wish you good reading.

About the Author:

I have dedicated my life to the study of literature and specifically Elizabethan Literature which led me to the writing of this book. I taught literature for 34 years at the Wayne State, University of Michigan, and Aquinas College. All the people that gave so much to me are now gone, but I still want to say thank you to them as my great teachers. Leo Kirschbaum of Wayne State University, Warner Rice, and GB Harrison of the University of Michigan among others, and finally to my many good students who made me think as deeply as I hope my teaching made them think. In this book I apply a mathematical pattern to the reading of poetry, novels, and plays, from Beowulf poet, Shakespeare, Melville, James, to Joyce. I will show that many of the difficult, dangerous, deeply offensive, and political subjects involved in these writings were handled as if their authors had never in the world heard of them. They are not seen on the surface of the works but are gotten to only by our working out the symmetries of the works that I deal with, so that we encounter what damns the human soul in Beowulf, what opens closed hearts in The Merchant, what exposes Horatio as the falsest of false friends, what shows Ismael’s voyage as one of unbelievable love, what shows James’s virtually tunneling his way deep into American atrocities against American blacks, and what shows us atrocities of Irish Priests and Fathers against Irish sons and daughters. I may have succeeded in producing a work with something astonishing upon every page. I certainly hope so. That was my intention.
