In prose and verse, novel and play, essay and short story, it shows the democratic spirit in its finest manifestations at work through the ages. For times like these, when democracy must be vitally dynamic, when it must consciously defend itself if it is to live, there is no better book for Americans. Here is a book of the world's greatest literature. Plato, Spinoza, James-Shakespeare and Ibsen-Dante, Keats, Whitman, Tolstoy and almost a hundred more of the world's most genuinely creative minds are here represented by their greatest work.
