I've loved E.B. White since I was a kid, and his book of essays has been on my list for several years. I expected to love them all, and did find something delightful in just about every one. However, while some essays are timeless, with themes that have direct correlations to political problems today, others seemed dated, particularly in the section entitled "The Planet." (Though being dated wasn't always a bad thing, like in "The World of Tomorrow," about the 1939 World's Fair and the Fair's vision of 1960's America. Reading it almost 75 years after the Fair, and over 50 years past "the future" was a hoot and a half.) But he is still E.B. White, and I still love him. His writing is top notch, the imagery is charming, and he finds poignant meaning in everything from a goose past his prime to a return trip to a childhood vacation spot. My favorite was "The St. Nicholas League."
