Sea of Reads

Peripatetic, itinerant, eclectic musings about books, politics, history, language, culture, and anything else that interests me.

Lincoln's Virtues

Subtitled “An Ethical Biography.” Auther is William Lee Miller.

Believe it or not, this is the first Lincoln bio I’ve ever read. I intended to read Team of Rivals as my first book about Lincoln, but when I got to the library, this book was on a display table along with several others. The concept — of writing a biography of Lincoln through the prism of Lincoln’s ethical development — intrigued me.

I’m about halfway through the book, and I’m really enjoying it.
