In 2010 he became a founding patron of Ralston College, a new institution in Savannah, Georgia, that focuses on primary texts. His works include Fallen Angels, Till I End My Song: A Gathering of Last Poems, Anatomy of Influence: Literature as a Way of Life and The Shadow of a Great Rock: A Literary Appreciation of The King James Bible.

I thought it was brilliant. I'm not observant so much of the details of the Hasidim and orthodox ways were new to me. The story of the relationship between the two boys and each boy with his father was excellent. But besides that, I was totally caught up in the tension that built up for the final climax. It was a wonderful story very well told.

While I didn't agree with everything posited by the authors of the essays herein (they don't even agree with each other; my own differences of opinion are hardly problematic) I did find the collection thought-provoking.

Beowulf is one of my favourite works of literature, but even so, I didn't expect quite the breadth of topics addressed in the essays and excerpted material collected in this book - history, religion, kinship, morality, heroism, language, fable, poetic style, and feminism.
