This work brings together John Betjeman's poems and prose and Paul Hogarth's paintings about the Church. Together, they demonstrate Betjeman's intimate knowledge of and love for the Church, both High and Low, and also his joy in the comedies and the small details of Church life. From Library Journal: These poems and prose writings by the late poet laureate, one of Britain's best-loved writers, capture the intimate world of church life. Betjeman leads the reader to appreciate all aspects of the churches of England, from the architecture to the clergy, congregation, and ritual, enlivening famous Victorian churches and less mainstream chapels with comedy and honesty. Hogarth, a popular British artist, sensitively lends grace and detail to Betjeman's already observant eye with 80 watercolor paintings of church architecture and their surrounding landscapes. Most readers will gain a renewed, or first-time, understanding of the many facets of church life. Recommended for all public libraries.?Leroy Hommerding, Citrus Cty. Lib.
