Divine Cartographies

God, History, and Poiesis in W. B. Yeats, David Jones, and T. S. Eliot

W. David Soud

Oxford English Monographs

  • Provides a triangulation of key texts: a selection of poems from Yeats's final decade; Jones's The Anathemata; and Eliot's Four Quartets.
  • Explores the theological dimension of these texts by analysing issues of secularization.
  • Considers three spiritual currents that became points of contention in the first half of the century: liberal Protestantism, the mystical revival, and Theosophy.
