It has taken me some time to put together even a short review of this book but I have found myself reading and rereading the essays since they landed in my hands Some of them contend with the American erosion of privacy and with that the diminished regard for self and others They take the reader to Lincoln and Whitman to various works of literature philosophy and film in short to exemplars of integrity and perceptionI will say a few words about three favorites Moral Imagination Lincoln and Whitman as Representative Americans and How Publicity Makes People RealMoral imagination the phrase first used by Burke may not strike us as odd at first but David Bromwich begins with its strangeness The two concepts do not intuitively go together Morality has to do with real situations real action imagination with what could be So what then is moral imagination I will not give away the answer here it s worth reading in full but I ll hint at what it is notOn pp 16 17 Bromwich writes A usual mistake of imagination especially when heated by ambition is to think of other people as moral objects while regarding oneself as a moral actor Moral imagination involves a different understanding which does not lead to self satisfactionThe essay on Lincoln and Whitman seems to build on these ideas What do these two men have in common and what sets them apart from others Lincoln and Whitman respect the people too much to want to flatter them writes Bromwich on p 97 They agree that democracy to remedy evils which it has itself brought into being reuires a respect thoroughgoing than can be found in any other system of mannersWhat is this respect It has to do with integrity and individuality and as I understand it with the recognition of that which is hidden in each of us On p 100 there is a uote from Whitman on his impression of Lincoln I uote the very end here He bow d and smiled but far beneath his smile I noticed well the expression I have alluded to None of the artists or pictures has caught the deep though subtle and indirect expression of this man s face There is something else there This passage highlights not Lincoln s expression as much as Whitman s perception The ability to perceive something else there inheres in moral imagination itselfBut what happens to a people that feels compelled to put itself out there for everyone to see What compromises and deceptions are involved in publicizing yourself The essay How Publicity Makes People Real examines this in an eerie light Not only do people crave publicity but publicity in a perverse sense allows people to express things they would not express in private We have yet to reckon with the novel fact he writes on p 223 that the media have been so naturalized in the lives of many that they are now widely understood to intercede for us The word intercede is essential here If by baring yourself or some approved version of yourself you achieve intercession and with that expiation what happens to the person who refuses to participate The private person the one who resists the gaze of mass culture will be classified as opaue unreliable even in some hard to capture sense potentially hurtful to normal people p 226What happens to the one who does submit to the public gaze The expiation does not do the trick since it brings new humiliation so the person submits himself again and again This comes across disturbingly and hilariously in Irving Feldman s poem Interrupted Prayers to which I was first introduced in this essay I won t give it away it s worth reading in full and in this bookWhat is the cause of this great publicity push From p 248 The culture of mediation has been clamoring for a long time to effect once and for all the good it wants faster beginnings efficient paths all the way into our lives Yes this is efficiency writ large and tiny those who comply will get swift rewards and stamps of approval while those who resist will be excluded subtly and slowly from that which poses as realThis seems gloomy indeed but the essay points to possible responses In particular one can maintain interest in one s life interest that does not depend on others approval But one kind of moral life depends on the possibility that even in what we do not say even in what we do not come to be known for we remain interesting to ourselves p 249 This is not self absorption to the contrary it has to do with intellectual and emotional delight continuance and uestioning for the sake of something other than the public puffing of selfThere is much to this book and to these particular essays than I have begun to suggest here They give hope in that they suggest what integrity can be They offer education at its best Star Wars: Darth Vader Vol. 1: Vader (Darth Vader

David Bromwich s collection of essays have stood the test of time for the most part and those that seem dated are interesting in their reflection of what we were thinking at a certain point in time I particularly appreciated his essays on Lincoln and his insights into Edmund Burke and Richard Price I loved the idea of Lincoln and Whitman as representative Americans but Lincoln then clearly rises above the moral average and Whitman s iconoclastic nature makes him a difficult fit So Bromwich did not prove his point but I think it was the wrong point from the start If we take Lincoln and Whitman instead as models of the moral imagination of his title they stand tall Even Burke might agree
