Moore recommends James Hillman's writings

Thomas Moore updates his blog today with "A Blue Fire", a post about the collection of James Hillman's work with the same title, edited by Moore and originally published in 1989. Moore writes, "The book is now used in several universities and institutes and sells rather well, for what it is, even after all this time. Its one limitation today is that it doesn’t include his more popular recent books or his many recent essays. Someone should do a new version." Moore outlines his continuing relationship with Hillman and urges readers, "If there is one person in the entire field of reflective writing that you should read, it’s James Hillman. I don’t think you will fully understand myth, literature, art or religion without first taking lessons from him."
