by Robert G. Cohn

The books in the Mediations series by Robert Greer Cohn represent the latest thoughts of Dr. Cohn on literature, politics, religion, and culture. Some of the essays are poetric and explore the spiritual side of contemporary issues while others offer Dr. Cohn's blunt assessment of current trends and ideas. The intellectual roots of these ideas are found in Western Judeo-Christian influences, the poetry of Mallarmé, and produce a unique synthesis of challenging ideas.

About the Author

Robert%20Cohn-low.jpgRobert Greer Cohn is best known for his lifetime work on Mallarmé. Michael Deguy referred to him as the "posthumous Mallarmé." Julia Kristeva, in an article subtitled "Hommage à R. G. Cohn" called him "Mallarmé's accomplice." Many major writers echoed these sentiments: Herman Broch, Giuseppe Ungaretti, Richard Wilbur, Philippe Sollers... His The Poetry of Rimbaud was deemed by Henri Peyre to be "perhaps the best study [of the poet] in any language." He was the founding editor of Yale French Studies and the author of sixteen books, a two-time Guggenheim fellow; he is professor emeritus of French at Stanford University.
