Mysticism and the Mid-Century Novel (repost)

James Clements, "Mysticism and the Mid-Century Novel"
English | 2012 | ISBN: 0230303544 | 224 pages | PDF | 0.7 MB

This book argues that many of the mid-twentieth century's significant novelists were united by their desire to return the interior novel to ethical engagement. They did not seek morality in society, politics or the individual will, but sought to unveil a transcendent God through the use of techniques drawn from the canon of mystical literature.
