    schema:reviewBody ""French journalist, polemicist, and novelist Georges Bernanos (1888-1948) is perhaps best known through Robert Bresson's film adaptation of Journal d'un cure de campagne (winner of the Grand prix du roman de l'Academie francaise published in English as Diary of a Country priest), Francis Poulenc's operatic adaptation of Dialogues des Carmelites, his first novel Sous le soleil de Satan, and the essay Grands cimetieres sous la lune." "Michael Tobin's study is part literary criticism, part biography. Tobin follows Bernanos and his family from France to Spain during the Civil War and then to Brazil and North Africa. He also provides a thematic synthesis of Bernanos's novels and his extensive body of non-fiction, demonstrating that one fundamental theological truth - the Incarnation of God in Jesus Christ - was the unifying factor in Bernanos's entangled political and social criticism and the engine of his creative imagination." "Recent English translations of some of Bernanos's novels have sparked renewed interest in his work in North America. Georges Bernanos includes Tobin's translation of essential texts that have never before appeared in English."--Jacket." ;
