Product description

Review

Browne is a cracked archangel.--Herman Melville

Browne is a cracked archangel. --Herman Melville

I translated Browne into seventeenth-century Spanish and it worked very well. I love him.--Jorge Luis Borges

Browne s is the voice of a strange preacher, of a man filled with doubts and subtleties and suddenly swept away by surprising imaginations.--Virginia Woolf"

The iniquity of oblivion blindly scatters her poppyseed and when wretchedness falls upon us one summer's day like snow, all we wish for is to be forgotten. These are the circles Browne's thought's describe.--W. G. Sebald, author of The Rings of Saturn

Browne's is the voice of a strange preacher, of a man filled with doubts and subtleties and suddenly swept away by surprising imaginations.--Virginia Woolf

No archaeologist ever took such care to construct such luxurious lines for his readership. Browne, on the level of language as well as inquiry, is not that strict, exacting, stereotypically staunch fusspot of science...Browne presents himself as more of an interlocutor, a foil reflecting the given light of the sun so others may feel a little less dark in their darkness.--Greg Gerke

About the Author

Sir Thomas Browne (1605-1682) was an English Renaissance author and physician. He wrote extensively about medicine, geography, philosophy, and Christian spirituality.
