THE NEW ORPHEUS by Nathan A. - Ed. Scott


Email this review


A formidable array of outstanding philosophical commentators on the modern world has been brought together here for the professionally interested to taste of significant theories which will certainly formulate the Christian ethic of tomorrow. The collection, thorough and comprehensive in its review of the Christian literary experience, begins with an analysis of the Christian institution and concludes with the study of the modern imagination from a Christian point of view. Among the contributors are Dorothy Sayers, T.S. Eliot, Denis de Rougemont, Gabriel Marcel, William F. ynch, S. J., Walter J. Ong, S. J. and Jacques Maritain. The New Orpheus is a basic course in the problems, methods and aims of Christian poetics as seen by scholars and critics of different Church affiliations. This is indeed another example of at work in an area in which all profit from sharing their views. Dr. Scott has performed a signal service to the field of literary criticism by compiling this collection.
