Apocalypse Analysis

Essential reading: Thomas Hibbs’s NRO essay about A Canticle for Liebowitz. I can’t really add anything to Hibbs’s excellent analysis. His is a great, if truncated, review of American apocalyptic visions–including a not-usual suspect.

But right after Hibbs, get busy reading Canticle. I had forgotten what a fantastic book it is.

Then get back here; I’ll have my own, more comprehensive survey of apocalyptic visions up by week’s end.
