About the Author:

Eva T.H. Brann is the dean of St. John's College in Maryland.

Review:

A model of organization. (New Vico Studies)

Its scope is breathtaking, and its argument brilliant. . . . Readers will be seduced into delightful engagement and will emerge enlightened, enlarged, and refreshed. . . . Brann not only writes about meditation, she is herself a wise and skillful mediator between the reader and the world of imagination. Her book is a monumental contribution to scholarship. (Christianity And Literature)

This book is at once the most definitive and the most comprehensive book of its kind ever written. For anyone who wants to know how imagination has been regarded in Western philosophical and psychological, literary, and religious thought, this text is an indispensable resource, a treasure-trove of insight and knowledge. (The Review Of Metaphysics)

A splendid achievement, a life's work...a monumental contribution to scholarship. (Jonathan Imber)

A scholarly and literary achievement of major proportions. . . . vintage work, the sort of even-handed and tempered scholarship we have come to expect from [Brann]. . . . The bibliographies at the end of each chapter (25 in all) are enough to astound any reader. The scope of this study and the detail of the investigation are truly remarkable. . . .

Brann . . . provides a work of astounding amplitude. She is, throughout, perspicacious, erudite, clear, down to earth, crisp, and lively, and she is not afraid to take firm, definite, and sometimes controversial positions. Although there are myriad works on the imagination, there are not any that approach Brann's book in its encyclopedic and insightful coverage. This book will be, for many years to come, the main source for any work on the imagination. It should be in every college and public library. (Choice)

Eva Brann's book is a very instructive and recommendable interdisciplinary inquiry into the multiple aspects of imagination in the domain of the humanities. (Utopian Studies Interdi)
