The reflective journey toward order; essays on Dante, Wordsworth, Eliot, and others by Marion Montgomery( Book )
8 editions published in 1973 in English and Undetermined and held by 895 libraries worldwide
T.S. Eliot : an essay on the American magus by Marion Montgomery( Book )
11 editions published between 1969 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 810 libraries worldwide
This brilliantly allusive and gracefully written study is focused on T. S. Eliot's developing commitment to Christianity, but the essay is by no means procrustean or reductive in its strategies, nor is it theological. Montgomery shows how Eliot's intellectual and emotional uneasiness in the early poems is reflected in such technical devices as point of view and imagery. The questions of the poem's voice and the poet's mask (which are often ironic in nature) become less pressing as time goes on, and finally Eliot comes to a dynamic stillness--a frozen point in the sea of change that is variously called nature, history, and society. This stillness embodies the poet's rendering of Christian incarnation--the Word within the word. The author finds too that Eliot's imagery grows richer during the progress of his spiritual journey. As the imagery becomes more religious it also grows more complex and more concrete

Eudora Welty and Walker Percy : the concept of home in their lives and literature by Marion Montgomery( Book )
8 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 397 libraries worldwide
"Eudora Welty and Walker Percy were very different writers. But the two friends were both from the Deep South and intensely interested in the relation of place to their fiction. This work explores in each the concept of home, the locale where one discovers oneself intellectually and finds comfort." "The differences between Welty and Percy and their fiction are revealed in the habits of their lives. Welty spent her life in Jackson, Mississippi, and was very much a member of the community. Percy was a wanderer who finally settled in Covington, Louisiana, because it was, to him, a "noplace." The author asserts that Percy envied Welty and her stability in Jackson and, though he was and is labeled a "Southern writer," Percy struggled to connect himself to any place at any moment."--Jacket

Hillbilly Thomist : Flannery O'Connor, St. Thomas, and the limits of art by Marion Montgomery( Book )
6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 220 libraries worldwide
"This analysis of O'Connor's works lays to rest the author's own self-deprecating description of herself as a "hillbilly" Thomist. Instead we see in O'Connor's writing a highly sophisticated mind, an in-convenience to the critics who dismiss her as anti-intellectual."--Provided by publisher
