Christian poetry essays

In The Golden String , written some 20 years after he became a Benedictine, Griffiths recalled being drawn, as a young boy, to ever-longer country walks, and finding his experiences and feelings amid nature echoed in the poetry of Wordsworth and Coleridge, and in time he made links to Plato — discovering an intellectual expression of the good, the true, the beautiful. Romantic misgivings followed at university, about modernity and industrialisation: old pastoral rhythms of life drowned out by the tick-tock of factory clocks; new military technologies pounding and mincing young flesh in the Great War. T S Eliot’s Wasteland (1922) served to confirm everything that had gone before in Griffiths’s developing understanding of the world, and now he went as far as setting up a Cotswolds commune with like-minded friends, determined to slam a cottage door on as much of the modern world as they could.
