Arthur's Dream The Religious Imagination in The Fiction of Patrick White Michael Green ISBN 0646267817 used second hand book for sale in Australian book shop Arthur's Dream The Religious Imagination in The Fiction of Patrick White -by- Michael Green. ISBN 0646267817. Green suggests that Patrick White gives each of his characters a particular imaginative horizon - Primitive, Jewish, Christian, Classical - and that the logic of each narrative depends upon the way in which these given horizons relate, or fail to relate, to each other; this approach provides a much-needed framework and terminology for accessing the perennially difficult area of White's spirituality.
