Note from John Shelton Lawrence

Wow. About five days after I returned from the PCA conference in New Orleans, I received a note from John Shelton Lawrence.

My paper had considered the historic portrayals of violence and considering the American Monomyth, and two of the scholars I cited at length (of course) were John Shelton Lawrence and Robert Jewett.

Lawrence was asking me to send Jewett a copy of the paper, and he had high praise for the work.

I was somewhat surprised and humbled. And, of course, I complied.

I even was able to ask both authors some follow-up questions to inform my book project.
