Garry Wills's complete translation of Saint Augustine's spiritual masterpieceavailable now for the first time Garry Wills is an exceptionally gifted translator and one of our best writers on religion today. His bestselling translations of individual chapters of Saint Augustine's Confessions have received widespread and glowing reviews. Now for the first time, Wills's translation of the entire work is being published as a Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition. Removed by time and place but not by spir...itual relevance, Augustine's Confessions continues to influence contemporary religion, language, and thought. Reading with fresh, keen eyes, Wills brings his superb gifts of analysis and insight to this ambitious translation of the entire book. "[Wills] renders Augustine's famous and influential text in direct language with all the spirited wordplay and poetic strength intact." Los Angeles Times "[Wills's] translations . . . are meant to bring Augustine straight into our own minds; and they succeed. Well-known passages, over which my eyes have often gazed, spring to life again from Wills's pages." Peter Brown, The New York Review of Books "Augustine flourishes in Wills's hand." James Wood "A masterful synthesis of classical philosophy and scriptural erudition." Chicago TribuneDetailed info »« Brief info
