"Fatherhood: An Anthology is a "literary tool-kit for fathers," addressing such timeless issues as responsibility, fear, and loss--as well as sports and the meting out of punishment. Remarkably wide-ranging in its sources, this anthology covers four thousand years of writing--from 2000 B.C. to 2000 A.D.--and includes selections from fiction, personal letters, and Ancient Greek poetry, as well as eighteenth-century childcare manuals, newspaper reports, and "The Simpsons. Rousseau, Plath, Freud, and Shakespeare weigh in on fatherhood, as do Bob Dylan, Auberon Waugh, Samuel Coleridge, Franz Kafka, and Johnny Cash.show more
