Abstruse, often paradoxical, but remarkable in many ways is this volume which analyses the metaphor of God as a Creator, using as concrete examples men and women in the field of creative activity, ranging from Shakespeare to Joyce. The market for this book is mixed, partly theological, partly literary. It is not however for the average reader who will find it difficult. With forthright penetration and acumen she points up the analogy between the divine and the human creator. A book for thoughtful readers and students.
