The new Bloomsday book : a guide through Ulysses by Harry Blamires( Book )

60 editions published between 1988 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since 1966 readers new to James Joyce have depended upon this essential guide to Ulysses. Harry Blamires helps readers to negotiate their way through this formidable, remarkable novel and gain an understanding of it which, without help, it might have take several readings to achieve." "The New Bloomsday Book is a crystal clear, page-by-page, line-by-line running commentary on the plot of Ulysses which illuminates symbolic themes and structures along the way. It is a highly accessible, indispensible guide for anyone reading Joyce's masterpiece for the first time."--Jacket
Word unheard: a guide through Eliot's 'Four quartets' by Harry Blamires( Book )

13 editions published between 1969 and 2016 in English and held by 931 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eliot's Four Quartets is arguably the finest long poem in modern English literature. It is also one that does present considerable problems of interpretation. It is this author's aim to unravel some of these problems by guiding the reader line by line through the poem, blending paraphrase with commentary. Four Quartets is seen as distinctively and pre-eminently a post-Joycean work. Its construction, the nature of its language and its referential economy strongly recall the technique of Ulysses. The musical structure, with its elaborate chains of echoes reverberating back and forth, is seen as especially important--a mode of expression precisely relevant to the meaning. Blamires pays particular attention to the philosophical and theological dimensions of the poem and to its multifarious personal, historical and literary allusions (particularly those to Dante). Finally, Blamires emphasizes that although he can provide some of the keys he cannot open all the doors. He stresses the condition of receptiveness necessary for the full realisation of this rich, beautiful but often elusive poem.--Adapted from book jacket

A guide through Paradise Lost___
A short history of English literature by Harry Blamires( Book )

66 editions published between 1960 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 868 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In revising A Short History of English Literature Harry Blamires has thoroughly updated his final three chapters to bring the discussion on the plays, poetry and novels of the twentieth century into the 1980s; the bibliography has also been fully revised and now provides up-to-date guidance for further study. The second edition has lost none of the original's conciseness and readability. The author guides the reader through some six centuries of English literature, beginning with Chaucer's time, when the language became recognizibly our own, and goes on to analyse the background, interconnections and major achievements of individual writers in each period. He gives the reader a sense both of the continuning literary tradition and the radical changes that, for example, the Romantic Movement brought in. The book leaves the reader informed about each writer's main output, sensitive to the special character of his gifts and aware of the writer's place in the story of English literature as a whole. A lucid and readable guide, it is invaluable both to the student of English literature and to the general reader. -- Back cover

The post-Christian mind : exposing its destructive agenda by Harry Blamires( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his classic book, Harry Blamires defined and explained the essential qualities of The Christian Mind. Here he exposes the agenda of the secular mind, vividly describing the way the media is trashing Christian principles in every area of life-human rights, marriage, family, morality, health, economy, environment, politics. "What we need," says Blamires, "is a Christian backlash, a vigorous response to the new paganism of the contemporary world." "Like C.S. Lewis, his teacher at Oxford and later his friend, Harry Blamires has written prolifically, from textbooks in his professional field to Christian fantasy novels and diagnostic apologies for mainstream faith. His constant concern as a literary disciple is to display and defend the Christian way of thinking in a non-thinking world. "The Post-Christian Mind is true journalism . . . shrewd reporting of what people around us think and do, with interactive comment offered on a basis of common humanity, common sense, and Christian insight. . . The masterful clarity and precision of the analysis offers wisdom for us all." - J.I. Packer, author of Knowing God -- Amazon

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Are heaven and hell metaphors of reward and punishment or actual destinations which await man and woman? Do our choices have anything to do with our eternal destiny? The author believes that many people are in danger of forgetting the truth about heaven and hell, to their peril. He points out that our choices have an immense impact upon our eternal well-being -- the joy of unending happiness with God or the unimaginable sorrow of eternal anguish. In an age of moral relativism, the author offers clear teaching on the reality of heaven and hell. This book brings us in touch with ultimate realities. It challenges, inspires, and leads us to a deeper understanding of the Father's desire to unite all men and women to himself forever. The invitation is clear. The choice is ours
