Part of the Studies in Literature and Religion book series (SLR)


In the course of this book I have referred, in varying degrees of detail, to four essays all bearing the title ‘Religion and Literature’. Their authors are T. S. Eliot, Cleanth Brooks, David Hesla and John J. McDonald. I began with Eliot and with him I will finish.
