Denby writes splendid film critiques for the New York magazine and is a contributing author to the New Yorker. Feeling a little jaded and deeply world weary he decided to return to Columbia University to attend the course in humanities which he had taken as an undergraduate. He writes of his young fellow students -- their backgrounds and their reactions to the classics so alien to today's culture, and his professors -- their attitudes, teaching methods and the ability of one or two to be outstanding. A mini-course in the core curriculum.
