Dylan Thomas: the country of the spirit by Rushworth M Kidder( Book )

20 editions published between 1973 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,927 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the Bible appears so frequently in Dylan Thomas' work, some critics have decided that he must be a religious poet. Others, noting blasphemous statements and certain irreligious aspects of Thomas' personal life, contend that he was no such thing. Rushworth M. Kidder, investigating this problem, looks below the surface of the obviously religious imagery and discovers a more profound poetry. The first part of this book discusses the nature of religious poetry and the application of that term to Thomas' work; it then develops the necessary background based on his letters and prose comments to provide a foundation for the study; and finally it examines the relationship between the religious aspects of his poetry and his well-known ambiguity. The author re-defines the vocabulary for dealing with religious imagery by establishing three distinct categories of imagery: referential, allusive, and thematic. This original technique is used to examine critically Thomas' poems to show the development of his religious and poetic thought. There are numerous close, sensitive readings of individual poems to show how his poetry, like the Bible, teaches by parable, speaking deliberate ambiguity rather than simple dogma. This strategy inspired poetry that is technically complex but thematically simple, a mode of verse that became more explicitly religious in the poet's final years. Originally published in 1973.

Moral courage by Rushworth M Kidder( Book )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 1,169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher description: In a book rich with examples, Rushworth Kidder reveals that moral courage is the bridge between talking ethics and doing ethics. Defining it as a readiness to endure danger for the sake of principle, he explains that the courage to act is found at the intersection of three elements: action based on core values, awareness of the risks, and a willingness to endure necessary hardship. By exploring how moral courage spurs us to strive for core values, he demonstrates the benefits of ethical action to the individual and to society -- and the severe consequences that can result from remaining morally dormant

Shared values for a troubled world : conversations with men and women of conscience by Rushworth M Kidder( Book )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 593 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What core values must we uphold if mankind is to survive and prosper in an increasingly complex and fragile world? Rushworth M. Kidder traveled the world to interview leading thinkers, artists, educators, business people, and religious and political leaders. In this book you will meet: a Buddhist monk, a former president of Harvard, a Chinese author, a top American business executive, and many others from diverse cultures. The author asked each person the same question: "If you could develop a global code of ethics, what would it be?" Based on the twenty-four interviews presented here, Shared Values for a Troubled World identifies eight universal values necessary to create the moral conditions necessary to create the moral conditions for a sustainable twenty-first century: love, truthfulness, fairness, freedom, unity, tolerance, responsibility, and respect for life. And as Harlan Cleveland so eloquently tells us in his foreword, "[The global code of ethics that emerges from these pages] is not, as the author keeps reminding us, the answer. But it is an answer to the primordial question about the twenty-first century: Can we, the world's peoples, come together on ethical common ground that doesn't permit the human experiment to end with either a bang or a whimper?"
