Pairing great writers from each generation who typify the contrasts and concerns of their age, Professor Brett explores the complex interplay between faith and doubt in English literature since the Enlightenment. Not confining himself to a biographical and historical approach, he deploys his understanding of contemporary philosophy and ideology to throw a new light on often neglected areas.The thoroughness of treatment, displaying wide reading and considered judgement, is carried off with a light touch. To lucid argumentation is added a clear and elegant style, leading both students and general readers admirably through the discussion. Established scholars will also appreciate Professor Brett's skilful account of the subject, which reveals previously-unseen connections and patterns.
