A stroll before dark; essays by Richard Church( Book )

8 editions published between 1965 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this collection of essays, Richard Church explores themes of countryside, poetry, family, and finding inspiration in the mundane. Split into two parts 'Moving About' and 'Sitting Still', these titles reflect the happy combination of travel sketches with literary criticism, of observations on household duties with the philosophy drawn from a lifetime's study and practice of the art of writing.First published in 1965, A Stroll Before Dark muses on everything from the wonder of the aurora borealis to the smallest details of life with a refreshing clarity and warmth. Whether discussing the habits of his pet cat, the poetry of John Betjeman, the differences between the changing, and yet unchanging, face of his beloved Kent or a visit to a South African game reserve, Church's readers will be enriched and entertained by the breadth of his knowledge, the elegance of his prose, and, above all, by his compassion, humour, and love of life

5 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richard Church handled with delicacy and quiet humour the abiding themes of life, literature and nature. The values he promoted were deeply rooted in tradition, but he showed himself to be ever alert to the hopeful signs of renewal and progress in the march for civilization This collection which is divided into four sections, is permeated with feeling for the beauty of the Kentish countryside where he made his home
