Betjeman and the Anglican Imagination Summary

Betjeman and the Anglican Imagination by Kevin J. Gardner

Elegantly and perceptively written, John Betjeman and the Anglican Imagination leads readers through the rollicking and humorous world of Betjeman's writings to gain a clear, grand picture of the turbulent faith behind one of Britain's most popular recent poets. 'More than twenty years after his death he is still widely remembered: as a poet of suburbia and nostalgic Englishness, as a radio and television personality and the beloved teddy bear to a nation, and as a devotee of causes that at one time must have seemed amusingly quaint or even eccentric. Victorian architecture, abandoned churches, gas lamps, and London's early suburbs were among the threatened hallmarks of English culture whose preservation he pioneered ...' from the Introduction
