The reflective journey toward order; essays on Dante, Wordsworth, Eliot, and others by Marion Montgomery( Book )

9 editions published between 1973 and 1983 in English and Undetermined and held by 889 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

T.S. Eliot : an essay on the American magus by Marion Montgomery( Book )

12 editions published between 1969 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 815 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eliot in the end decides the poet's personal struggle to know his world is more important than the poetry which "does not matter," as he says in East Coker. Paradoxically the poetry of T. S. Eliot takes on an increasingly classical quality as it steadily becomes more personal and Christian. Montgomery accordingly shows how Eliot ultimately arrives "where he started and sees the place for the first time."

Eudora Welty and Walker Percy : the concept of home in their lives and literature by Marion Montgomery( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Eudora Welty and Walker Percy were very different writers. But the two friends were both from the Deep South and intensely interested in the relation of place to their fiction. This work explores in each the concept of home, the locale where one discovers oneself intellectually and finds comfort." "The differences between Welty and Percy and their fiction are revealed in the habits of their lives. Welty spent her life in Jackson, Mississippi, and was very much a member of the community. Percy was a wanderer who finally settled in Covington, Louisiana, because it was, to him, a "noplace." The author asserts that Percy envied Welty and her stability in Jackson and, though he was and is labeled a "Southern writer," Percy struggled to connect himself to any place at any moment."--Jacket

Hillbilly Thomist : Flannery O'Connor, St. Thomas, and the limits of art by Marion Montgomery( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This analysis of O'Connor's works lays to rest the author's own self-deprecating description of herself as a "hillbilly" Thomist. Instead we see in O'Connor's writing a highly sophisticated mind, an in-convenience to the critics who dismiss her as anti-intellectual."--Provided by publisher

"In this work, a self-proclaimed third-generation Fugitive-Agrarian concentrates on the history and mystery of nature. The author supports the recovery of fundamental principles required for the economic, social and political health of our communities. He explores Fugitive-Agrarian concepts of nature, history, science, industry, person, family and community. His discussion focuses particular attention on John Crowe Ransom and Allen Tate and how they diverged in their philosophies of intellect and the written word."--Jacket
