Santayanahimself was an inveterate maker of notes in the margins of his books, writing(although neatly, never scrawling) comments that illuminate, contest, orinterestingly expand the authors thought.

These volumes offer a selection ofSantayanas marginalia, transcribed from books in his personal library. These notesgive the reader an unusual perspective on Santayanas life and work. He is by turnscritical (often), approving (seldom), literary, slangy, frivolous, and evenspiteful. The notes show his humor, his occasional outcry at a writers folly, hisconcern for the niceties of English prose and the placing of Greek accent marks.These two volumes list alphabetically by author all the books extant that belongedto Santayana, reproducing a selection of his annotations intended to be of use tothe reader or student of Santayanas thought, his art, and his life.

Each entryincludes a headnote with the authors name, the title of the work, brief publicationinformation, and the library location of the book. Not all marginalia from a giventext is included- the notes have been selected for content and style. [cut lastsentence- cut entire paragraph if nec.] Santayana, often living in solitude, spent agreat deal of his time talking to, and talking back to, a wonderful miscellany ofwriters, from Spinoza to Kant to J.

S. Mill to Bertrand Russell. These notesdocument those conversations.
