Denise Levertov : a poet's life by Dana Greene( )

15 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,083 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Levertov was the quintessential romantic. She wanted to live vividly, intensely, passionately, and on a grand scale. Once she acclimated herself to America, the dreamy lyric poetry of her early years gave way to the joy and wonder of ordinary life. By the late 1960s and early 1970s, however, her poems began to engage the issues of her times. The crystalline and luminous poetry of her last years stands as final witness to a lifetime of searching for the mystery embedded in life itself. This volume represents the first attempt to set Levertov's poetry within the framework of her often tumultuous life

3 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Born in England into a family of successful Catholic writers, Ward's dedication to the Church ignited when, as a young woman, she joined the Catholic Evidence Guild. A group of street corner preachers, the Guild members gave witness to their Catholic faith in the parks of London. Ward met her future husband, Australian law student Frank Sheed, during her days with the Guild. Together, Maisie and Frank founded the publishing company of Sheed & Ward, which made a significant contribution to Catholicism through the publication of original works by Catholic writers and translations of noted Catholic European theologians."--BOOK JACKET. "Throughout her life, Ward wrote, lectured, and raised money for her causes. Her books included biographies of Chesterton, Newman, Houselander, and Robert Browning, as well as books about the saints, the early church fathers, and scripture. To promote Sheed & Ward's books, she traveled the lecture circuit in America. She gave numerous talks at Catholic colleges, Newman clubs, and parish suppers, getting to know American Catholics. During her last decades she devoted herself to "harboring the harborless," founding the Catholic Housing Aid Society."--BOOK JACKET. "Maisie Ward believed that "God mattered," and that faith unlived was no faith at all. Through her writing, social commitments, and lecturing, she inspired an entire generation of pre-Vatican II believers to hope that aggiornamento might be possible."--Jacket

Elizabeth Jennings : "The Inward War" by Dana Greene( Book )

6 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elizabeth Jennings was one of the most popular, prolific, and widely anthologized lyric poets in the second half of the twentieth century. This biography, based on extensive archival research and interviews with Jennings's contemporaries, integrates her life and work and explores the 'inward war' the poet experienced as a result of her gender, religion, and mental fragility. Originally associated with a group of English poets known as 'the Movement, ' Jennings was sui generis, believing poetry was 'communication' and 'communion.' She wrote of nature, friendship, childhood, religion, love, and art, which endeared her to a wide audience. Yet lifelong depression, unbearable loneliness, unrelenting fears, poverty, and physical illness plagued her. These were exacerbated by her gender in a male-dominated literary world and an inherited Catholic worldview which initially inculcated guilt and shame. However, a tenacious drive to be a poet made her "the most unconditionally loved writer of her generation." Her life is tracked in her voluminous published and unpublished poetry and prose. The themes of mental illness, the importance of place, the problems associated with being an unmarried woman artist, her relationship with literary mentors and younger poets, her non-feminist feminism, and her marginality and sympathy for the outcast are all explored

Life of Evelyn Underhill by Margaret Cropper( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A passionate writer and teacher who wrote elegantly on mysticism, worship, and devotional life, Evelyn Underhill urged the integration of personal spirituality and worldly action. This is the moving story of how she made her way toward spiritual maturity, from her early days of agnosticism to the years when her influence was felt throughout the world." "An early believer that contemplative prayer is not just for monks and nuns but for anyone willing to undertake it, Underhill considered the study of modern science not as a threat to contemplation but rather an enhancement of it. Her many lectures and writings on mysticism and spirituality, including her classic Mysticism: A Study in the Nature and Development of Man's Spiritual Consciousness, inspired the many people touched by her unique passion to take on a spiritual life."--BOOK JACKET
