The Scope of Words

In Honor of Albert S. Cook

Peter Nicholas Baker, Sarah Webster Goodwin and Gary Handwerk

A collection of essays and poems to honor Albert S. Cook, Emeritus Professor of Comparative Literature, English and Classics (Brown University), these writings were composed for the occasion by Professor Cook's colleagues and former students. The range of topics addressed extends from Classics to Contemporary Literature, Film, Music, and History. The scope of writings and controversies they engage reflect the tremendous range of Professor Cook's own career as a writer, teacher and scholar.
