In Praise of Ludwig Lewisohn
Several years ago I proposed a class paper-turned-essay on Ludwig Lewisohn (1882-1955) and his masterpiece, The Island Within, to then-JBooks.com editor Josh Lambert. Josh took the pitch and did a great job editing the piece (which you can still find here). So I was especially delighted to see Josh’s own excellent work on Lewisohn published on Nextbook.org a few days ago. It seems we’re a small but devoted group, those of us who love Lewisohn and The Island Within. Join us!
