dc.description.abstractenThis article explores the numerous Biblical and philosophical references present in Anne Tyler’s Noah’s Compass and assesses how they discretely offer the reader an invitation to undertake a philosophical journey while following the narrative of Liam Pennywell’s everyday life. I argue that the references to the Old and New Testaments, to Epictetus, Arrian, Marcus Aurelius, Seneca, Socrates and George Santayana underline the problems inherent in looking for a textual ethical guide, one which can stand up to the test of one’s personal life experience.en
