The Pen and The CrossTeresa De Bertodano, via The Good Book Stall
Griffiths offers an overview of the contribution made by Roman Catholicism to English Literature, starting in the Victorian Era and taking us through to the millennium. In 1850 Catholics were a beleaguered minority – tolerated but definitely suspect. By 2000 they were a force with which to be reckoned. Catholic literature reflected this development in prose, poetry and the performing arts. Griffiths offers an overview of the great names – Newman, Manley Hopkins, Evelyn Waugh, Muriel Spark and Graham Greene, not forgetting some of the relatively unknown. I was especially struck by his insight into English and French Catholic literature; the differences between the two and the cross fertilization between them.
