The Ignatius Critical Editions series represents a tradition-oriented approach to reading the Classics of world literature. While many modern critical editions have succumbed to the fads of modernism and post-modernism, this series concentrates on critical examinations informed by our Judeo-Christian heritage as passed down through the ages---the same heritage that provided the crucible in which the great authors formed these classic works.
Edited by acclaimed literary biographer Joseph Pearce, the Ignatius Critical Editions ensure that readings of the works are filtered through the richness of Western tradition, meeting the authors in their element, instead of the currently popular method of deconstructing a classic to fit a modern mindset---a lamentable Aaw that often proliferates in other series of critical editions.
The series is ideal for anyone wishing to understand the great works of Western Civilization, enabling the modern reader to enjoy these classics in the company of some of the finest literature professors alive today.
