Reading this book was like revisiting a country I thought I knew well with a guide who could show me all kinds of delights I had missed in my previous sojourns. . . . A terrific, engaging book." --Michael Schoenfeldt, author of Prayer and Power: George Herbert and Renaissance Courtship "This Book of Starres" is one of those all-too-rare books in which an author's love of someone's work--in this case, the seventeenth-century English poet George Herbert--leads to a journey of exploration. Herbert's poetry presents a special set of challenges: It is to the modern ear archaic, difficult in thought and structure, and entirely theological in character. Yet no poet is more deeply admired by those who know him well. "This Book of Starres" is meant to engage the reader in a process of reading by which this verse can be seen to be vivid and alive. It is the record of one person's life-changing involvement with the poetry of George Herbert; in this it is about not only how, but why we read great poetry. "It is a joy to experience Herbert's poetry in the company of James Boyd White, whose affinity for the work is always convincing and seems at times preternatural. 'This Book of Starres' is a necessary pleasure: all readers of poetry, whether expert or inexpert, will find it enriching." --Alice Fulton ". . . both a delight to read, and one of the most instructive exercises in literature and theology I have read for a long time. . . . Herbert emerges as one of the greatest, a writer to test and change the imagination, the very way in which we think about the world and that which is beyond it." --Literature and Theology James Boyd White is Hart Wright Professor of Law, Professor of English, and Adjunct Professor of Classical Studies, University of Michigan.

From Library Journal: White has written a wonderful book not just about George Herbert but also about the way poetry creates meaning. White, a professor of law and classics as well as English who has written on the relationship of language and the law (e.g., Justice as Translation, Univ. of Chicago Pr., 1990), here looks at how Herbert uses language in The Temple. White begins with a close reading of several individual poems, then considers how the poems in The Temple reflect on one another and how Herbert structures his volume to create sequences and relationships that add meaning to each poem. This study is filled with insights, such as the recognition that in Herbert's manuscripts the mise-en-page allows poems-or parts of poems-to face each other and so comment on each other. For Herbert, faith finally is essential but also difficult and troubling. Recommended for academic libraries; undergraduates will enjoy the clear, jargon-free writing.

Descrizione libro The University of Michigan Press, United States, 1995. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. New edition. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. This Book of Starres is one of those all-too-rare books in which an author s love of someone s work - in this case, the writings of seventeenth-century English poet George Herbert - leads him to guide the reader on a journey of exploration. James Boyd White takes the position that literature of this quality can be read by an ordinary intelligent reader, bringing whatever he or she happens to be to the process. This is a claim for the accessibility, and also the importance, of the great works of our tradition, so often now insulated by a kind of professional barrier. Herbert s poetry presents a special set of challenges: it is to the modern ear archaic, difficult in thought and structure, and entirely theological in character. Yet no poet is more deeply admired by those who know him well. This Book of Starres engages its audience in a process of reading that shows this verse to be vivid and alive, speaking directly across the barriers of time and culture. It is the record of one person s life-changing involvement with Herbert s poetry; in this it is about not only how, but why we read great poetry. Codice libro della libreria BTE9780472083374
