Enchanting the World

Enchanting the World

The Vision of 20th Century Catholic Authors

Art and literature are in the business of enchantment. When we are enchanted, we are captivated by some part of life—whether it be the fragile charm of the week-old infant or the force of a waterfall that takes our breath away. Enchantment—like the vital energy of Eros—defies definition. Poetry more often finds the words for this phenomenon. This book opens a window into the rich writings of Catholic authors during the 20th century—including Evelyn Waugh, James Joyce, Flannery O'Connor, Graham Greene and others—who found the mesmerizing presence of God in an often disenchanted world.
