The Poet as Christian
|Publication Date||April 2014|
|Formats||Hardcover Ebook (EPUB) Ebook (PDF)|
This is the second in a series of three books beginning with a study of the poet's debts to Lancelot Andrewes and culminating with a forthcoming commentary on Four Quartets. Here, G. Douglas Atkins reveals specific differences between Eliot's pre-1927 poems and those he wrote following conversion to Anglo-Catholicism, differences reflective of inchoate understanding developed, purified, and fulfilled. 'Stunning' readings, 'beautifully' rendered, mark the extensive treatment of Ash-Wednesday and the short poems Journey of the Magi, A Song for Simeon, Animula, Marina, Triumphal March, and The Cultivation of Christmas Trees.
