Essays in Dissent: Church, Chapel, and the Unitarian Conspiracy
Carcanet, 1995 - 264 من الصفحات
Donald Davie has insisted - even as he was writing about Modernism and Ezra Pound - on an area of English literature, history and spirituality misread and misvalued in a secular age, when the churches are themselves at pains to dilute or deny the sermons, hymns and tracts which defined and energised their chapel lives. Davie neither dilutes nor denies: he reappraises with scholarly, searching love the elements from which his culture and imagination are shaped.
He edited the Oxford Book of Christian Verse and the Penguin Book of Psalms. This volume brings together his 1976 Clark Lectures (Cambridge), the 1980 Ward-Phillips Lectures (Notre Dame) and related material, illuminating the political and spiritual heritage of distinctively English Protestant traditions.
