Kirk’s Ghostly Tales

Jeffrey D. Pearce recently guest edited two “lib guides”—thematic lists of reading resources—for the library of Everett Community College in Everett, Washington. In “Ghostly Sightings…And Other Scary Stories…”, Pearce links to Russell Kirk’s short story anthology Ancestral Shadows, the essay “A Cautionary Note on the Ghostly Tale,” and Dr. Kirk reading “There’s a Long, Long Trail A-Winding.” In “A Tribute to Ray Bradbury,” he features a quote by Dr. Kirk and a link to his essay on Bradbury.

Kirk was convinced that in our age, the unimagined life is not worth living for a human being. He labored to reform our sensibilities, so that we could see ourselves both for what we are and for what we have become. He labored to make available an intellectual tradition of dissent from the modern age. He labored to release our hearts from the bondage of ideology.
