The pattern in the web the mythical poetry of Charles Williams by Roma A King ( )
4 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 906 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Charles Williams has achieved considerable reputation for his novels. He has been recognized as a brilliant theologian and a sensitive literary critic. But Williams himself wished most to be remembered as a poet, and trusted his future literary reputation to the two-volume series of poems on the Arthurian theme, Taliessin Through Logres and The Region of the Summer Stars.Of the first volume Williams wrote: "The matter and the style require and reward attention. The poems do not so much tell a story or describe a process as express states or principles of experience. The names and incidents of the Arthurian myth are taken as starting-points for investigation and statement on common and profound experience." In this first full-length study of these poems, they receive, in both matter and style, the close attention that Williams requested.The emphasis in this study is on the quality of these poems as poetry and only secondarily upon their religious content. Although essentially Christian, they are placed within the context of the multifaceted, many-changing forms of recurring myths. Thus they represent one of the few attempts in the twentieth century to encapsulate and age-old and ever-recurring "pattern in the web" in a brilliant structure that is thoroughly modern

To Michal from Serge : letters from Charles Williams to his wife, Florence, 1939-1945 by Charles Williams ( Book )
5 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"When Great Britain declared war with Germany in 1939, the Oxford University Press moved its offices from London to Oxford, and poet, author, and Oxford University Press editor Charles Williams was forced to go along. Mrs. Williams, however, elected to stay in their flat in London. To Michal from Serge is an edited collection of the nearly seven hundred letters Charles wrote to Florence during the years they were separated." "These letters to "Michal," Williams's endearing name for his wife, from "Serge," a nickname by which his most intimate friends addressed him, are more than just love letters; they are significant for what they tell us about the man, for the light they throw on his work, and for the way they show Williams in the context of his literary contemporaries and friends (C.S. Lewis, T.S. Eliot, W.H. Auden, Dorothy L. Sayers, Christopher Fry, and Edith Sitwell). Williams felt that T.S. Eliot and C.S. Lewis were the only two people other than his wife to whom he could talk seriously about important matters." "This resource will prove especially valuable for those interested in glimpsing the tumultuous inner life of creative artist Charles Williams, poet and wartime writer."--BOOK JACKET
