Against the Pollution of the I: Selected Writings of Jacques Lusseyran

Against the Pollution of the I: Selected Writings of Jacques Lusseyran (Used)

by Lusseyran, Jacques

Publisher: Morning Light Press

Binding: Paperback

Book ID: 9781596750098, 159675009X


This inspiring new volume presents six little-known essays by the blind French author and Resistance leader Jacques Lusseyran, gathered together for the first time in English. Two of the essays delve more deeply into the human drama and heroism of his interment in a Nazi prison camp at Buchenwald, which Lusseyran described so movingly in his autobiography And There Was Light. Others explore the mystery and wonder of the world that his remarkable inner vision revealed, and offer a comparison of sight both with and without eyes.

Imagine experiencing senses far beyond the usual five-true and vivid sight without eyes, sound from trees, pressure from inanimate objects. Imagine reading the words of a man whom many consider a modern day saint. Against the Pollution of the I possesses the ingredients that make for success: the heroism of World War II, clear-sighted hope, and a full-hearted love of life. Four of the six essays are based on Lusseyran's experiences both during and after university life as a professor of literature and philosophy in Europe and in the United States. Three of the essays address being blind in a sighted society. Blindness, for Lusseyran, invited him to pay more attention, enabling him to discover the divinity of the world available to all people. And in this remarkable collection of essays, Lusseyran offers us a way to access our precious light-filled inner self -- our I -- and transform our lives!
