Arthur's Dream The Religious Imagination in The Fiction of Patrick White Michael Green ISBN 0646267817 for sale 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. Used softcover book. 268 pages. In fine condition. Weight 425 grams.
