About the Author:

Dennis Quinn is Professor of English at the University of Kansas, Lawrence.

Review:

For readers interested in what a widely read and intelligent intellectual reactionary, not a pundit or a 'culture warrior,' thinks of the history of Western culture and how it relates to our current predicaments, 'Iris Exiled' is a good way to find out. (William E. Burns, Washington, D.C. Sixteenth Century Journal)

Quinn nimbly traverses the historical developments about wonder, persuasively argues his philosophical position, and trenchantly analyzes and interprets as a literary critic. In the end, he has written a fascinating study. I encourage one to read his book: It is the next best thing to matriculating at Kansas University and learning from the master teacher directly. (Curtis L. Hancock, Rockhurst University Review of Metaphysics)
