The reflective journey toward order; essays on Dante, Wordsworth, Eliot, and others by Marion Montgomery( Book )
8 editions published in 1973 in English and Undetermined and held by 899 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
T.S. Eliot : an essay on the American magus by Marion Montgomery( Book )
11 editions published between 1969 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 815 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This brilliantly allusive and gracefully written study is focused on T. S. Eliot's developing commitment to Christianity, but the essay is by no means procrustean or reductive in its strategies, nor is it theological. Montgomery shows how Eliot's intellectual and emotional uneasiness in the early poems is reflected in such technical devices as point of view and imagery. The questions of the poem's voice and the poet's mask (which are often ironic in nature) become less pressing as time goes on, and finally Eliot comes to a dynamic stillness--a frozen point in the sea of change that is variously called nature, history, and society. This stillness embodies the poet's rendering of Christian incarnation--the Word within the word. The author finds too that Eliot's imagery grows richer during the progress of his spiritual journey. As the imagery becomes more religious it also grows more complex and more concrete

8 editions published between 1967 and 1970 in Undetermined and English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Eudora Welty and Walker Percy : the concept of home in their lives and literature by Marion Montgomery( Book )
7 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 397 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 222 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."--BOOK JACKET

With Walker Percy at the Tupperware party : in company with Flannery O'Connor, T.S. Eliot, and others by Marion Montgomery( Book )
5 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"But not really unhappy - rather sympathetically regretful that his usual hosts at that party (his possible audience) have lost recognition of the holiness of things that requires the pilgrim intellectual soul a deportment to things in "a sacrament" of consent, before the "mystery" larger than the pretenses of scientism. The world, that is, is not a desert to be plundered to self-comfort as justified by a positivistic apotheosis of the "Self" as a sovereign autonomy desert-bound. The "making" of sacramental piety, whether as novelist or Delta planter, requires the stewardship of love to things in themselves."--BOOK JACKET
