Product description

Synopsis

Whether we are religious or not, the Devil evil incarnate is a concept that can still strike fear in our hearts. What if he does exist? What if he is causing all our problems in his determination to keep us from reaching our full potential? Stephen Batchelor takes the concept of the Devil out of literature and history and brings him to life in his many forms and guises: the flatterer, the playmate, the caring friend, the stranger who offers rest and solace, the person who knows you best and shows you your greatness in the world. And, most of all, as the great obstructer that blocks all paths to greatness and true humility. For the first time, Batchelor fuses Western literature, Milton, Keats, Baudelaire with Buddhism and the Judeo-Christian traditions in a poetic exploration of the struggle with the concept and reality of evil. Living With The Devil reveals the voice of new poet and philosopher for our times.
