Poetry and Prayer: The Power of the Word II
Foyalty 106

Poetry and Prayer: The Power of the Word II (Paperback)

£34.99
Usually despatched within 2 weeks.

Synopsis

Interdisciplinary and ecumenical in scope, Poetry and Prayer offers theoretical discussion on the profound connection between poetic inspiration and prayer as well as reflection on the work of individual writers and the traditions within which they stand. An international range of established and new scholars in literary studies and theology offer unique contributions to the neglected study of poetry in relation to prayer. Part I addresses the relationship of prayer and poetry. Parts II and III consider these and related ideas from the point of view of their implementation in a range of different authors and traditions, offering case studies from, for example, the Bible, Dante, Shakespeare and Herbert, as well as twentieth-century poets such as Thomas Merton, Denise Levertov, W.H. Auden and R.S. Thomas.

Francesca Bugliani Knox is a Research Associate at Heythrop College and Teaching Fellow at University College London. Her publications include translations into Italian as well as several books and articles on various aspects of English and Italian literature from the Renaissance to the present, including The Eye of the Eagle: John Donne and the Legacy of Ignatius Loyola (2011). She was the editor, with David Lonsdale, of Poetry and the Religious Imagination (2015). At present she is putting together a collection of essays by various authors on Monsignor Ronald Knox for the Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies. John Took is Professor of Dante Studies at University College London. His publications include a study of Dante's aesthetics, including his literary aesthetic, an introduction to the minor works, an account of Dante's phenomenology of existence, and a critical edition with a commentary and translation of the Fiore, a version of the Roman de la rose attributed by some scholars to Dante. Recently published too is a volume on aspects of Dante's theology entitled Conversations with Kenelm (Kenelm Foster, O.P., having been among the most significant of British Dante scholars of the second half of the twentieth century), as well as a revised version of a MS left by the late Professor Christopher Ryan of Cambridge on Dante and Aquinas. His main project at present, however, is a fresh synthesis of Dante's life and work provisionally entitled simply Dante.
