Born in London on October 12, 1925, the Year of the Ox, Peter Milward SJ attended the Jesuit school of the Sacred Heart, Wimbledon, and joined the Society of Jesus in 1943. After studies of the Classics and English at Oxford, he arrived in Japan in 1954, and from 1962 onwards has been teaching English with special attention to Shakespeare at Sophia University, Tokyo. Fr. Milward has authored some 350 books, most of them published in Japan. His academic books on Shakespeare and Hopkins have attracted readers in England and America. He now lives in retirement at the age of 83, which has the meaning of honey in Japanese.Review:
Peter Milward s A Poem of the New Creation is like a fusion of Dante Alighier's Divine Comedy and Chesterton s Orthodoxy... The spirit of God's love for mankind permeates the poem, with a powerful, realistic and unsentimental reverence for humanity...[I]ndeed a new creation at once traditional and original, a fresh revelation of how the dark confusions in mankind's temporal condition can be transfused though the voice of Christian grace and prophecy from its sorrowful tragedy into the joyous comedy of redemption. --Dr. Peter J. Stanlis, Distinguished Professor of Humanities, Emeritus, Rockford College
As a Jesuit filled with the poetic Muse it is tempting to compare Fr. Milward with his great Jesuit forebear, Gerard Manley Hopkins; it is, however, better to compare this poetic tour de force with T.S. Eliot's Four Quartets. Like Eliot, Fr. Milward pierces the cloud of unknowing with the light of grace-filled mysticism, aglow with Christian orthodoxy. --Joseph Pearce, biographer, writer-in-residence and associate professor of literature, Ave Maria University
