William Morris, his work and influence by A Clutton-Brock( Book )

43 editions published between 1914 and 2008 in English and held by 541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Morris held that art was everybody's business, whether they are themselves artists or not. By art he didn't mean merely pictures or statues, but all the work of men's hands. He made beautiful things for himself and others, feeling that beauty is the result of men who are happy in their work and lives--ugliness is tied to unhappiness. Morris believed that one of the chief ills of modern society was that most people had to work at jobs that were joyless--and it was against that joylessness that he rebelled. His fight was against a barbarism caused by joyless labor, and the discontent that did not know it as a cause

Essays on religion by A Clutton-Brock( Book )

8 editions published between 1926 and 1969 in English and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This posthumous book, unfinished as it is, increases the reader's interest in the man and his thought. Haltingly, but alertly, the essays picture his struggle towards a philosophy of religion integrated with, not apart or hostile to, the modern spirit. The approach is through the aesthetic judgment and the sense of beauty. He sees matters of faith as practical, simple, human issues, convinced that the writers of the sacred books were men dealing with problems that our modern world has to deal with. All great art and all religion are to him inspired. He writes not from a sense of reaction to conventional solemnity, but from a sense that religion is essentially spontaneous, an expression of the delight in beauty and zest of living, that Christ is the supreme poet and master of the life of beauty. - Sewanee Review, 1926
The necessity of art by A Clutton-Brock( Book )

8 editions published between 1924 and 1969 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is in the world to-day a conviction of sin about art. People realize more every year that the badness of our architecture, decoration, music, drama, which has been our legacy from the immediate past, is an offense against the highest that is in us; they are discarding both the bleak indifference of our puritan tradition and the decadent hedonism which was a reaction against it : everywhere in all the arts there is improvement a return to sincerity, simplicity, beauty; and the improvement is due to the growing conviction of the high seriousness of art. We are less tempted to regard the arts because of their delightfulness as a mere pastime; we are discovering that in them we touch the eternal world that art is in fact religious. The object of art is not to give pleasure, as our fathers assumed, but to express the highest spiritual realities. Art is not only delightful : it is necessary
Essays on life by A Clutton-Brock( Book )

13 editions published between 1925 and 1970 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The outstanding virtue of these brief essays is that they deal with life to-day without the insistence of being modern, a very good reason for their remaining effectual in days to come. The late Clutton-Brock had zeal, preferences, and definite judgments in his search for "high happiness," but the zeal is amiable, and the purpose aesthetic rather than moral. - Sewanee Review, 1927
Religious foundations by Rufus M Jones( Book )

7 editions published between 1923 and 1986 in English and Undetermined and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is a little book of quite unusual quality, with writers who are very widely and favorably known. All are people of deep reverence, constructive faith, unswerving devotion to truth and a determination to go forward whenever the pillar of God moves onward. There has been no attempt made to direct the different authors or to force the book into a harmony of position but there is a striking unity of outlook and insight. It is an honest book, written by men who have said what they sincerely believe. It accepts the established facts of science and history, but it is penetrated with a great faith in the eternal verities by which men can live triumphant lives and stand the universe in this period of gravity and of hear-searching

9 editions published between 1927 and 1971 in English and Undetermined and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arthur Clutton-Brock had a sincere desire for the furtherance of religious truth and unity. Confounded by difficulties in the way of a solution of the mystery of the universe and of our own personal existence, he endeavoured to formulate in these essays some system of belief which--if it fails in its appeal to the majority--may yet carry weight with many who are struggling to hold to some faith which will give them a key to life

Considered one of the most prominent actors of the Victorian era, William Morris (1843-1896) was a poet, artist, designer, and editor, and did not hesitate to express his socialist political views, which at the time were frowned upon by the estalishment. His encounters with Rossetti and Burne-Jones, as well as his religious studies, made him a man of manifold talents. From this mixture of genres, William Morris would go on to construct a remarkable career, applying his ideas through various enterprises he established under the name of the "William Morris Companies," revolutionizing both interi

William Morris by A Clutton-Brock( Book )

6 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Morris (1834-1896), par son éclectisme, fut l'une des personnalités emblématiques du XIXe siècle. Peintre, architecte, poète et ingénieur, maniant avec autant de talent la plume que le pinceau, il bouleversa la société victorienne en refusant les standards instaurés par l'industrie conquérante. Son engagement dans la rédaction du manifeste socialiste fut la suite naturelle de cette révolution qu'il incarna dans l'habitat, les formes et les couleurs. Précurseur des designers du XXe siècle, il fut le cofondateur, avec John Ruskin, du mouvement des Arts & Crafts. En homme libre, William M
