From John Updike's first collection, The Carpentered Hen. "Humanities Course" Professor Varder handles Dante With wry respect; while one can see It's all a lie, one must admit The "beauty" of the "imagery." Professor Varder slyly smiles, Describing Hegel as a "sage"; But still, the man has value--he Reflects the "temper" of his "age." Montaigne, Tom Paine, St. Augustine: Although their notions came to naught, They still are "crucial figures" in The "pageantry" of "Western thought."
