Joseph Conrad : his moral vision by George A Panichas( Book )

9 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book seeks to renew interest in Joseph Conrad's moral imagination - not literary theory but the dignity of creative literature impels the author's reflections on Conrad's novels in their "varied shades of moral significance." Here, the author approaches Conrad's novels in the context of what the novelist V.S. Naipaul writes: "In fiction he did not seek to discover; he sought to explain; the discovery of every tale is a moral one." With illuminating interpretations, the author focuses on the consequences of moral darkness and moral warfare as he proceeds to uncover Conrad's basic ideas and meaning. The book shows that morality in Conrad's work is not reducible to an absolute category but must be apprehended in the forms of both moral crises and the possibility of moral recovery enacted in their complexity and tensions." "Guiding a reader's travels to the furthest realms of Conrad's imagination so as to penetrate to the heart of the novelist's moral vision is one of the author's dominant aims. Anyone disturbed by post-modernist advocates of a New World Order has much to ponder in this challenging book."--Jacket
The burden of vision : Dostœvsky's spiritual art by George A Panichas( Book )

9 editions published between 1985 and 2005 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fyodor Dostoevsky's highest and most permanent achievement as a novelist lies in his exploration of man's religious complex, his world and his fate. His primary vision is to be found in his last five novels: Crime and Punishment, The Idiot, The Devils, A Raw Youth, and The Brothers Karamazov. This volume culminates twenty years of studying, teaching, and writing on Dostoevsky. Here George A. Panichas critically analyzes the religious themes and meanings of the author's major works. Focusing on the pervasive spiritual consciousness at play, Panichas views Dostoevsky not as a religious doctrinaire, but as a visionary whose five great novels constitute a sequential meditation on man's human and superhuman destiny."--Jacket

The critic as conservator : essays in literature, society, and culture by George A Panichas( Book )

5 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The unifying principle informing these essays is the insistence that the critic's mission is to conserve universal values and truths in a world of flux and confusion. Panichas' conservatism is one of conservation, anchored firmly in the belief that there are enduring things to defend and save. This timely collection of writings will challenge all readers concerned with moral disarray and spiritual barrenness in modern times

The critical legacy of Irving Babbitt : an appreciation by George A Panichas( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This penetrating new study of one of the twentieth century's leading literary and social critics is the product of a lifetime of reflection. It is a discerning examination of the ideas of Irving Babbitt, founder of the intellectual movement known as the New Humanism. An early mentor of T.S. Eliot and a Harvard professor, Babbitt was also a diagnostician of the modern social order, which he believed to be in rapid retreat from a faith in first principles and first causes. He saw that Western intellectual life was drifting toward what he termed "a new dualism based on the myth of man's natural goodness." Babbitt's writings were uncompromising and controversial. His ideas revolved around the ultimate problems of life, literature, and thought and were rooted in and impelled by moral concerns and imperatives. George A. Panichas writes with rare sympathy and vision, drawing the reader to a frame of reference that elucidates Babbitt's affinities with his contemporaries, including the religious philosopher Simone Weil, with whom Babbitt shared a grounding in French literary thought, a reverence for the classical tradition, and a fascination with Asian religion and philosophy. "Babbitt never ceased to state the case for criticism," Panichas asserts. "Nor did ever relent in affirming the active independence of, if not the parity between, the creative and the critical states of mind." As a major American critic, Babbitt stood four-square against the most insidious forces assailing modern man. Throughout The Critical Legacy of Irving Babbitt, Panichas wrestles with what such a figure represents in terms of human possibility and moral illumination. Beyond all else, this profound study and appreciation is an effort to re-introduce and re-integrate a deeply needed restorative influence and paradigm into contemporary existence. -- from dust jacket
The essential Russell Kirk : selected essays by Russell Kirk( Book )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the author of The Conservative Mind and other seminal books, Russell Kirk is usually thought of as one of the American conservative political movement{u2019}s most important progenitors. But as this collection demonstrates, Kirk was perhaps at his best as an essayist. This volume also confirms that Kirk{u2019}s was principally a literary and historical conservatism that refused to fit the irreducible complexity of human experience to the requirements of any ideological straitjacket. With The Essential Russell Kirk, literary critic George A. Panichas captures the breadth and depth of Kirk{u2019}s intellectual project by gathering together forty-four of the most masterful of Kirk{u2019}s essays, along with a unique chronology told in Kirk{u2019}s own words and a substantial introduction that articulates the deep humanism that animated Kirk{u2019}s philosophy. The result is a carefully assembled volume that gives us a fuller picture of an extraordinary man and writer, one whose labors had, and continue to have, remarkable repercussions on the American literary and political landscape
