"New Makers of Modern Culture takes into full account the rise and fall of reputation and influence over the last twenty-five years and the epochal changes that have occurred: the demise of Marxism and the collapse of the Soviet Union; the rise and fall of postmodernism; the eruption of Islamic fundamentalism; the triumph of the Internet. Containing over eight hundred essay-style entries, and covering the period from 1850 to the present, New Makers includes artists, writers, dramatists, architects, philosophers, anthropologists, scientists, sociologists, major political figures, composers, film-makers and many other culturally significant individuals and is thoroughly international in its purview. With its global reach, New Makers of Modern Culture provides a multi-voiced witness of the contemporary thinking world. The entries carry short bibliographies and there is thorough cross-referencing. There is an index of names and key terms."--Publisher's description

Furious interiors : Wales, R.S. Thomas, and God by Justin Wintle( Book )

10 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Reverend R. S. Thomas, enemy of the ephemeral, is our greatest poet of universals, without peer as an observer of Nature, of God's presence and absence, and of the stormy, inscrutable relationship of Man to each. He is a perpetual, jarring reminder to British literature that it so often loses sight of last things. Thomas is famously reticent, reclusive even, and disdains publicity. But steadily, slowly, by the pull of his potent poetry, publicity has come to him, most recently through his nomination for the Nobel Prize for Literature. Not that Thomas is never moved to meet the world: he has tangled with it noisily and controversially, in outspoken defence of the Welsh language, of rural Wales and of ardent nationalism; and in his memoir, Neb (Nobody), he gave up morsels from his life, albeit in the third person." "Furious Interiors is the first book to scrutinize Thomas' patriotism and his prose, his predecessors and his pacifism to see how they reflect on and are reflected in his poetry - and to taste how they illuminate the relationship between English and Welsh. In pursuit of Thomas, Justin Wintle, a commentator and critic of acuity and style, gravitates towards the heart of Welsh Wales, where politics and poetry mingle, where Thomas' poems so conspicuously matter, where poetry has, simply, always mattered."--BOOK JACKET
