A study of literature for readers and critics by David Daiches( Book )

A study of literature is not an obscure book of literary theory; it contains abundent and pungent examples and critical analyses-ofprose fiction, of modern writing, and of the nature of poetry. "Its main purpos" as Professor Daiches says, "is to help the reader of works of imaginative literature to see what he is reading, to understand just what it is that he gets from different kinds of reading, and to discriminate between those different kinds." -- From jacket

40 editions published between 1941 and 1983 in English and held by 1,198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mr. Daiches first traces the history of English Bible translation, then makes a lengthy excursus into the development of Hebrew scholarship in Europe, and finally studies the work of the translators against a background of their times, differentiating between the two forces which produced such scholarship: the "back to the Bible" movement of the reformers and the disinterested scholarship that was a feature of the Renaissance. Of particular importance are the author's textual investigations of the rendering of Isaiah and his discussions of Greek and Hebrew scholarship in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. - Jacket

God and the poets by David Daiches( Book )

24 editions published between 1984 and 2013 in English and Italian and held by 1,096 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Now available in paperback, this highly acclaimed work, hailed by The New York Times as "graceful, fluid, and extremely accessible," is a study of the ways in which poets from the biblical age to the present have addressed the subject of the nature and existence of God. The book treats such authors as Dante, the medieval Hebrew religious poets, the 17th-century religious poets, and the 18th century Nature poets, and discusses, among other topics, the influence of Calvinism and the poetry of stoicism, agnosticism, and atheism. Throughout the work, Daiches examines the tensions generated when a traditional religious belief which the poet accepts, or feels he should accept, runs counter to the hard facts of his own experience. The author also considers the particular problems which have emerged in this century for the religious poet who cannot accept any specific religious creed, and for readers who are unable to appreciate a poet's set of beliefs. God and the Poets does not set out to provide a comprehensive account of the poetic portrayals of God, but offers the reader a wealth of illuminating reflections on a subject which has obsessed poets over the ages
