Plato set his dialogues in the fifth century BCE, when written texts were disseminated primarily by performance and recitation. He wrote them in the fourth century, when literacy was expanding. Jill Frank argues that there are unique insights to be gained from appreciating Plato's dialogues as written texts to be read-and reread. At the center of these insights is the analogy in the dialogues between becoming literate and coming to know or understand something, and two different ways of learning to read. One approach treats literacy as a top-down affair, in which authoritative teachers lead students to true beliefs. Another, recommended by Socrates in the Republic, encourages trial and error and the formation of beliefs based on students' cognitive and sensory experiences. The first approach to learning to read aligns with philosophy as authoritative knowledge and politics as rule by philosopher-kings. Following the second approach, Poetic Justice argues that the Republic neither endorses nor enforces fixed hierarchies in knowledge and politics but offers instead an education in ethical and political self-governance, one that prompts citizens to challenge all claims to authority, including those of philosophy.

"Want to be taken to another world, a time and place you have only dreamed of but never dared go? Justice will be your guide: looking into your soul, fifi nding your passion within, taking you into a dark and mysterious world, and screaming gotcha! Do not fear, witness the beauty which the darkness holds: sadness, hope, desire, a sea of emotions in every word. Let go and free your mind. Dance with Justice in the darkness and feel your passion." ~A. Hults "Justice proves social media and technology are weak imitators against creative writing, and insists on prying the reader's mind open with complicit care or, when necessary, a thought provoking, poetic battering ram. Hints of romantic bliss, inhumane punishment, and righting the wrongs of mankind's foolishness are abundant and uplifting, yet happy endings are not guaranteed. The reader needs to spend less time attempting to understand the motivation and more on what wild ride this literary carnival barker will point toward next. Justice presents a beguiling canvas, demanding the individual reader decide how every story should end." ~D. Smith "Turn the lights down low, get comfortable, and open the cover of Poetic Justice and be swept away into another time and place. Justice lifts you to the pinnacle of desire and leaves you shaking your head at the injustice around us. Dark and alluring, this book reaches into the fabric of your soul, and with biting nails pulls you into the ecstasy contained within." ~J. Bouyat

The survival of the University College is in doubt, especially as their President Jeremiah Cudlipp is determined to shut it down.

Everybody's got that one dream! You know..."C'mon lotto"... or "If I ever get rich and famous" kinda dream. Here's mine... I've always wanted to own this big ol' Victorian house, with the wrap around porch and the rotunda! Inside would be practice rooms, a recording studio, and a great room that would have built in bookshelves filled with books on poets, and musicians, and music. In another large room would be a stage for poetry readings and acoustic nights and such. A non-profit creative arts school! FREELANCE & FREEDOM PERFORMING ARTS! The cost would be on a sliding scale for most and free to those who don't have the means to pursue their creative art in music. It would be an environment that would provide music lessons and/or explore creativity and dreams in music. I've wanted to do this ever since I saw the movie Billy Jack! The character Jean ran a school where creativity was key to finding yourself and also a place providing a human service. That was when I first put creative arts providing a human service together! I have worked in human service related jobs for over twenty years. I have been writing since childhood and loved music since birth. So in addition to "C'mon lotto"..."If I ever get rich and famous"...have you ever heard anyone say..."Someday I'm gonna write a book!" Working a job where I could use my creativity was always my first choice, but, like so many other people I was pushed to get a "real job". So I pondered...and I thought...what if I write a book? It would give me personal satisfaction and pride...'real riches don't have dollar signs'...and if it did make a few bucks, I could donate 'money' to a human service cause! Creative art providing a human service! Livin' the dream... Now isn't that just poetic justice?

When cantankerous old Alfonse Sweetzer is found murdered in the art room of the Wyleyville Public Library, the list of suspects could include this whole Maine village. His rude and arrogant behavior has made him the least liked man in town. But topping the list of suspects is library director Jessie Tyler. Not only does she have the means and the opportunity, she has a powerful motive. Two years ago her husband was mowed down and killed by Sweetzer while the older man was driving his robin egg blue Cadillac. Sweetzer was given a slap on the wrist by the court, and the man continued his hazardous driving habits, while showing no remorse for his actions. Before the death of her husband, life had been close to perfect for Jessie who lives at Killdeer Farm, her dream house in the country. Inherited from her grandparents, the farm takes her back to better days when she shared it with family. Jessie can't let Sweetzer get the best of her even in his death. With her neighbor Cassie, the two attempt to solve the murder before Jessie or her son is hauled away in handcuffs.
