The Perfect Gift: The Philanthropic Imagination in Poetry and Prose

Edited by Amy A. Kass

Amy A. Kass, a senior lecturer in humanities at the University of Chicago, has assembled a grab-bag of readings on philanthropy from such sources as the Bible, Aristotle, Shakespeare, Alexis de Tocqueville, Jane Addams, Edith Wharton, C.S. Lewis, Eudora Welty, Dorothy Parker, and the Dalai Lama. Kass's principal goal is to help readers think more deeply about the basis of their philanthropic decisions. "What is rarely clear enough--and what is therefore at the heart of this anthology--is the grounds of our own judgments about why, how, to whom, and what we should give," she writes. "Caught up in the particulars, we seldom make clear to ourselves the standards that guide us as givers or the expectations we have of our recipients."
