|Description:||xxii, 172 p. ; 24 cm.|
This intimate memoir of Warren's formative years begins with his childhood on a New England farm and education at Wesleyan, Harvard, and Princeton and ends with reflections on the scholar's search for identity, religion, and wisdom; the relationship between his profession, education, and his vocation, writing; and the need for a new vision of the role of the teacher. The journey in between is an extraordinary odyssey of spiritual and intellectual discovery - an elegant chronicle of "becoming" by a singular personality who searched ceaselessly for meaning and a wider intellectual world.
