No modern, well-versed literature lover can call their education
complete without having read Augustine's Confessions. One of the
most original works of world literature, it is the first
autobiography ever written, influencing writers from Montaigne to
Rousseau, Virginia Woolf to Stephen Greenblatt. It is here that we
learn how one of the greatest saints in Christendom overcame a wild
and reckless past. Yet English translators have emphasised the
ecclesiastical virtues of this masterpiece, at the expense of its
passion and literary vigour. Restoring the lyricism of Augustine's
original language, Peter Constantine offers a masterful and elegant
translation of Confessions.
