Honorable Men Are Dead
Dean Anthony is a tenured English Literature professor. He is revered by his students for his charismatic style of 'jousting' with the text. By night, he is destitute and homeless, riddled with debt and shunned by family and friends. His colleagues treat him as a pariah. His mother is emotionally abusive. His father is constantly vacant. His good intentions are often misread. Zealous loyalty to a childhood friend brought an abrupt end to his marriage. That same childhood friend’s addictions led to the loss of his home. His world has been a cesspool of betrayal, disillusionment and disappointment. Literary studies and his students are his saving graces. They are also his link to a precipitous world that is both vicious and vicarious, that is increasingly vacuous and virtual. Can the reevaluation of ethics, Epicurus and the virtues of yesteryear save him in the modern world?
