Sir John Betjeman was one of the twentieth century's great makers
of the Christian imagination. He was maybe the most significant
literary figure of our time to declare his Christian faith and his
terror of dying. Betjeman used his formidable gifts for poetry to
show us how to think about the Anglican faith and about Englishness
and Christianity in general. Here is an anthology of about 75 poems
on religious themes, with clarifying footnotes and a critical
introduction that offers an overview of his life and poetry as well
as a commentary on some of his more difficult poems. Here is a new
perspective on BetjemanOCOs life and beliefs. This new edition of
Betjeman's religious poetry will demonstrate that Betjeman is the
great poet of the Church in the twentieth century; it will also
introduce delightful, accessible and important poetry to new
readers. It will suggest to both British and American readers ways
of thinking about spiritual cultural and ecclesiastical matters as
well as about the intersection of literature and art."
