Form and Faith in Victorian Poetry and Religion - 2854291306

Form and Faith in Victorian Poetry and Religion Oxford University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Kirstie Blair explores Victorian poetry in relation to Victorian religion, with particular emphasis on the bitter contemporary debates over the use of forms in worship. She argues that poetry made significant contributions to these debates, not least through its formal structures. By assessing the discourses of church architecture and liturgy in the first half of the book, Form and Faith in Victorian Poetry and Religion demonstrates that Victorian poets both reflected on and affected ecclesiastical practices. The second half of the book focuses on particular poets and poems, including Browning's Christmas-Eve and Tennyson's In Memoriam, to show how High Anglican debates over formal worship were dealt with by Dissenting, Broad Church and Roman Catholic poets and other writers. This book features major Victorian poets - Tennyson, the Brownings, Rossetti, Hopkins, Hardy - from different Christian denominations, but also argues that their work was influenced by a host of minor and less studied writers, particularly the Tractarian or Oxford Movement poets whose writings are studied in detail here. Form and Faith presents a new take on Victorian poetry by showing how important now-forgotten religious controversies were to the content and form of some of the best-known poems of the period. In methodology and content, it also relates strongly to current critical interest in poetic form and formalism, while recovering a historical context in which 'form' carried a particular weight of significance.

Hymn of Praise for Celtic Saints and Other Poems New Generation Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Christian readers of all ages and persuasions will find new delight in Bishop Paul's latest volume of poetry. The Bishop has turned his attention to the early Christianity of the British Isles, and in this Celtic mist we discern the noble figure of St Patrick, who converted Ireland to the true faith; St Aidan, the founder of Lindisfarne monastery; St Brendan, who went to sea in a boat and discovered America (maybe!); St Brigid, whose not-so-noble father tried to sell her to a neighbouring chieftain; and sweet St Iltut, the warrior saint who forsook king and court for a hermit's life, saved a deer from the royal hunt, and then baptised the king himself! The trials of the early evangelists in a Britain fragmented into many warring kingdoms, and the conflict between regal authority and the higher authority of God, before Rome claimed exclusive rights at Whitby in 663, reveal a faith of simplicity, steeped in the oral and eremitical tradition. Here too are devotional poems based on Bishop Paul's beloved Orthodox Liturgy and occasional verses, notably a memorial to our courageous, and it seems too easily forgotten, monarch, George VI.

John Milton was a master of almost every type of verse, from the classical to the religious and from the lyrical to the epic. His early poems include the devotional 'On the Morning of Christ's Nativity", "Comus", "A Masque", and the pastoral elegy "Lycidas". After Cromwell's death and the dashing of Milton's political hopes, he began composing "Paradise Lost", which reflects his profound understanding of politics and power. Written when Milton was at the height of his abilities, this great masterpiece fuses the Christian with the classical in its description of the fall of Man. In "Samson Agonistes", Milton's last work, the poet draws a parallel with his own life in the hero's struggle to renew his faith in God.

Making Nothing Happen is a conversation between five poet-theologians who are broadly within the Christian tradition - Nicola Slee, Ruth Shelton, Mark Pryce, Eleanor Nesbitt and Gavin D'Costa. Together they form The Diviners - a group which has been meeting together for a number of years for poetry, and theological and literary reflection. Setting the context with their autobiographies, personal writing processes and diverse Christian backgrounds, as well as scholarship and experience, each poet offers an illuminating reflection on how they understand the relation between poetry and faith, rooting their reflections in their own writing, and illustrating discussion with a selection of their own poems. The poets open up many issues for deeper exploration and reflection, including: the nature of creativity and the distinction between divine and human creation; the creative process as a process of exploration, epiphany and revelation; craft and labour in the writing process; the forging and problematising of identity through the writing process; diverse ways in which the arts can reflect, challenge and dialogue with faith and faith can inform and challenge the arts; the exercise of power and voice in poetry and faith; and ways in which race, gender, and culture interact with and shape poetic and theological discourse.This book will be of interest to poets and theologians, to all who read poetry and are interested in the connections between literature and faith, to those seeking inspiration for preaching, liturgy and pastoral care, and to those committed to the practice and nurturing of a contemplative attitude to life in which profound attention and respect are offered to words and to the creative Word at work.

Stone Sleeper ANVIL PRESS POETRY

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Inspired by tombstones and their inscriptions, Mak Dizdar's rich and haunting poems in "Stone Sleeper", his most famous work, are a journey into the mysterious heart of medieval Bosnia. The poems form a three-way dialogue between the modern poet, the Christian heretics awaiting Judgement Day beneath their enigmatically-carved tombstones, and the heretic-hunters. Beneath the local and temporal, Dizdar explores universal issues: the value of resistance, though it might be futile; of faith, though it might be illusory; and, of life, though it ends in death. Francis R Jones' inventive and beautiful translations convey his deep understanding of Dizdar's purpose. In addition a penetrating analysis of "Stone Sleeper"'s historical, religious and spiritual background is given by the distinguished scholar Rusmir Mahmutaehajia, whose book "Across the Water: On the Poetry of Mak Dizdar" is published by Fordham University Press.

Poetry of W.H.Auden PALGRAVE MACMILLAN

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

W.H. Auden has been a dominant force in twentieth-century poetry since the publication of his first book of poems in 1930. His work has borne witness to some of the major events of the century - from the slump of the 1930s to the war in Vietnam - yet it has an intensely personal and domestic side. A British subject who renounced his nationality in 1939 and subsequently took up American citizenship, Auden's life and work are full of complex divisions and contradictions. In this Readers' Guide, Paul Hendon introduces some critical paths through Auden's demanding poetry by drawing upon material ranging from contemporary reviews and comments by fellow poets, to more recent scholarly and theoretical approaches. There is an overview of Auden's life and works, useful for readers new to the poet, while subsequent chapters discuss key critical themes through selected extracts . Issues such as the ambiguity of Auden's politics, his return to Christian faith, and his attitude to history, criticism and art are discussed, while the critical arguments surrounding his 'defection' to America and the significance of the increasingly domestic nature of his later work are assessed. The book concludes with a discursive summary of the main critical works on Auden. This Guide offers an introduction to the work of this major poet through the criticism it generated.

Sir Gawain and the Green Knight Penguin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Composed during the fourteenth century in the English Midlands, "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight" describes the events that follow when a mysterious green-coloured knight rides into King Arthur's Camelot in deep mid-winter. The mighty knight presents a challenge to the court: he will allow himself to be struck by one blow, on the condition that he will be allowed to return the strike on the following New Year's Eve. Sir Gawain takes up the challenge, decapitating the stranger - only to see the Green Knight seize up his own severed head and ride away, leaving Gawain to seek him out and honour their pact. Blending Celtic myth and Christian faith, "Gawain" is among the greatest Middle English poems: a tale of magic, chivalry and seduction.

T.S. Eliiot Reading the Wasteland, Four Quartets, and O Harper Collins

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The most famous, beautiful and spiritually moving poems of the twentieth-century, read by the most famous poet. Historic recordings of the cream of Eliot's poetry. It is always something of a revelation to listen to a poet reading his own words, and these recordings are no exception. Eliot clearly and evenly characterises and reveals the voices of some of his most important works in this excellent reading. The Waste Land caught the imagination of the age with its powerful emotional impact. Eliot felt that the modern Western city had become a sterile desert waste land, and in it life had become a sham pretence, with no content but stale conventionality. The Four Quartets express the poet's whole-hearted acceptance of the Christian faith. Each poem describes a meditation which leads to a reconciliation with the burden of the past.
