About this title:

Synopsis: Nostalgia and love of parish churches is deeply embedded in the British psyche. Following the success of Poems in the Porch, a collection of hitherto unpublished poems on parish churches by Sir John Betjeman, Kevin Gardner has now assembled a new anthology of poems on the same theme yet with a greater diversity of post-war authors - Philip Larkin, R. S. Thomas, John Betjeman, C. Day Lewis, U. A. Fanthorpe and many others. The collection is introduced by a fascinating critical introduction, 'Anglican Memory and Post-war British Poetry' and will appeal to church and poetry lovers alike in their droves.

About the Author: Dr Kevin J. Gardner is Professor of English at Baylor University, Texas. He has published numerous scholarly essays on British poetry. His books include Poems in the Porch (Continuum) Faith and Doubt of John Betjeman (Continuum) and Betjeman and the Anglican Imagination (SPCK).

Book Description Featherstone, 2016. Condition: New. For the modern visitor, parish churches are places of reverence, mystery and charm which stand as monuments to a bygone era of belief and ritual. This anthology comprises more than 90 poems on English churches by post-war poets such as Sir John Betjeman, Philip Larkin, Fleur Adcock and Simon Armitage. They are united by a mood of nostalgic yearning inspired by the buildings¿ evocative architecture, their place in a changing physical landscape and their significance as sites of cultural memory.
