Reviews

"Philip Edward Phillips has brought together a remarkable collection of perspectives in this sample of extraordinary documents written by people in prison. Some of the most important ideas in human history were hatched in prison and continue to inform our world. Hopefully, this introduction will lead readers to pursue others who did not let prison stifle their thought such as Marco Polo, Jeremiah, Cervantes, Paul, and Martin Luther King, Jr." - Harry Lee Poe, Charles Colson Professor of Faith and Culture, Union University, USA

"Prison Narratives from Boethius to Zana encourages readers to educate themselves about very important and relevant topics. This is a unique and timely contribution to the world of letters and the humanities broadly conceived. The roll call of familiar figures, coupled with some less celebrated case studies, reifies and enriches expectations, thereby providing a viable platform for learning more about key incarcerated figures in the Western tradition, as well as about related social and political movements." - William E. Engel, Nick B. Williams Professor of English, Sewanee: The University of the South, USA

"The eleven stimulating biographical essays in this collection are certain to prompt readers to reflect on how the experience of being locked up by society for crimes of conscience can unlock a rich and distinctive array of written reflections on society's most fundamental values. Along with the excellent scholarly insights that the essays offer, their authors have provided the perfect introduction to help readers go on to explore the original writings of their subjects, who range from the 6th through the early 21st centuries." - Donald H. Whitfield, Vice-President, The Great Books Foundation
