Translated by F.J. Sheed

"Prior to Augustine, no author had ever turned his speculative gaze so intently upon his own life and interiority. Hence, without the 'Confessions', there would have been no Shakespearean soliloquies (in fact, Augustine coined the term ‘soliloquia’); Joyce could never have written ‘Ulysses’ or ‘A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man’; Freud and Jung could never have developed psychoanalysis."
