Tending the Heart of Virtue By Vigen Guroian AudioBook Summary
In Tending the Heart of Virtue, Vigen Guroian illuminates the power of classic tales and their impact on the moral imagination. He demonstrates how these stories teach the virtues through vivid depictions of the struggle between good and evil, while he also unveils components of the good, the true, and the beautiful in plot and character. With clarity and elegance, Guroian reads deeply into the classic stories. He demonstrates how these stories challenge and enliven the moral imaginations of children. And he shows the listener how to get “inside” of classic stories and communicate their lessons to the child.
For more than two decades Tending the Heart of Virtue has been embraced by parents, guardians, and teachers for whom the stories it discusses are not only beloved classics but repositories of moral wisdom. This revised and expanded second edition includes three new chapters in which Guroian inteprets such stories as Hans Christian Andersen’s The Ugly Duckling, the Grimms’ Cinderella, and John Ruskin’s The King of the Golden River.
