Acclaimed essayist Edward Short writes with his usual insight and brio on a range of historical, literary and Newmanian matters. Here are essays on the poets Thomas Hardy and Lord Tennyson, Rudyard Kipling and T.S. Eliot, W.H. Auden and Elizabeth Jennings; on the historians G.M. Trevelyan, Christopher Dawson, R.W. Southern and Andrew Roberts; on the novelists Anthony Trollope, Henry James, Graham Greene and Evelyn Waugh; on the biographers James Grant, Richard Greene and John Batchelor; and on such brilliant thinkers as Edmund Burke and C.S. Lewis. A number of pieces on Saint John Henry Cardinal Newman round out this rich, elegant miscellany. A companion volume to Edward Short’s first essay collection, Adventures in the Book Pages, this new compilation will delight all readers interested in history, literature and the most eloquent of Catholic saints. Paperback, 500 pages.
