The Catholic imagination in American literature by Ross Labrie( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 716 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Central to Catholic belief is the doctrine of the Incarnation, wherein human experience and the natural world are perceived as both flawed and redeemed. This doctrine can be seen as the axis on which Catholic American literature in general rests and from which variances by particular authors can be measured. The optimism implied in this doctrine, together with an inherited American political consciousness, allowed a number of Catholic authors, from a culture otherwise perceived as outside the American mainstream, to identify with a political idealism that granted dignity to the individual. Counterpointing this emphasis on the individual, though, is the doctrine of the church as an intermediary between God and humanity and the belief in the community of saints. In concert with the doctrine of the Incarnation, these teachings gave Catholic writing a communal and prophetic dimension aimed at the whole of American society

Thomas Merton and the inclusive imagination by Ross Labrie( Book )

10 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas Merton, described as the most important American religious writer of the past hundred years, was a Roman Catholic priest, a Trappist monk, a social activist, and a poet. One of the notable characteristics of Merton's writing, both in poetry and in prose, was his seamless intermingling of religious and Romantic elements, an intermingling that, because of his gifts as a writer and because of his enormous influence, has had the effect of making widespread a distinctive form of religious thought and expression. In this book, Ross Labrie reveals the breadth of Merton's intellectual reach by taking an original and systematic look at Merton's thought, which is generally regarded as eclectic and unsystematic. This work, which takes into account material from Merton's journals and from his Columbia University notebooks on Romanticism, not only shows Merton's intellectual growth but provides a look at his expansive interests as well

Realism and Religion in Graham Greene. by Ross Labrie( )

2 editions published in 1960 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aristotle is called a "realistic" philosopher though to a modern mind he might seem "idealistic." To avoid any confusion of terms, I have capitalized "Realism" and usually qualify it by the adjective "empirical." At the outset, I should like to make it clear that I do not refer to "realism" in the Aristotelian connotation but to a specific quality that characterizes much of modern, English and American literature." --

Thomas Merton on art and religion in William Faulkner by Ross Labrie( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For Thomas Merton, artists mirrored many of the functions traditionally performed by religious contemplatives. In particular, the sapiential and holistic approach taken in William Faulkner's fiction gave rise in Merton's view to an embedded higher state of awareness that allowed one to intuitively bridge the gap between the microcosm of one's own mental world and the macrocosm of ultimate reality. This bridge is created when the reader is drawn to plumb the depths of the psyche in order to thereby encounter the face of the creator. For Merton, the truths of the self that had been reavealed by depth psychology, comparative religion, and social anthropology had brought forth a sapiential harvest, one that was present in a number of Faulkner's novels and stories. In this way, Merton argued, Faulkner both shaped and enriched theology." --From abstract
