Discovery of pure joy
By SUE ABBOTSON
PROVIDENCE, RI – Unmitigated joy. How often do we get to experience that in life? For most of us, our daily activities are filled with a rather unpredictable mix of satisfying moments, annoyances, intriguing challenges, and mundane tasks. But unmitigated joy? Not so often. And, yet, as Sue Abbotson reminds us, unmitigated joy is a real possibility, and sometimes comes to us in unexpected ways.
Sue Abbotson is the author of several books on drama, including three on Arthur Miller, the most recent being her Critical Companion to Arthur Miller. She teaches in the English department at Rhode Island College.
