Examines, through a close reading of a wide-range of texts, how the image of the religious minister and religion is mirrored in literature. Authors examined include Chaucer, Shakespeare, George Eliot, James Joyce, Trollope, Morris West, Graham Greene, Bernanos, and others. Genres considered and non-canonical texts studied include: Fitzgerald's short story "Absolution"; Chapter 7 of John Henry Newman's only semi-autobiographical novel; Edmund Gosse's unique text; and Ralph Waldo Emerson's text from the essay genre combined with his various journal entries and letters. An interdisciplinary effort, this volume is well documented and researched, yet still accessible to a non-academic readership.
