I found this cogent article by Russell Kirk today titled “The Moral Imagination.” Russell Kirk is kind of one of the two patron saints of Hillsdale College, other bloggers of this website and my alma mater. (The other is Winston Churchill if you were curious.) To emphasize this point, our Western Heritage readers both begin and end with Russell Kirk. This is an article written about what purpose poets and novels should have in their writing, which is to form the moral imagination. Enjoy!
