Two From The American Conservative on Conservative Literati

Micah Mattix reviews a new book about a poet for whom great poetry "begins in delight and ends in wisdom" — How to Read Robert Frost.

"Can Christian humanism redeem an age of ideology?" asks Brad Birzer — Making Modernity Human. The author references, among others, "Irving Babbitt and Paul Elmer More, and [Nikolai] Berdyaev, Christopher Dawson, and T.S. Eliot," "C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and their circles in Britain, as well as philosophers Jacques Maritain and Etienne Gilson in France," and even "Flannery O’Connor, E.I. Watkin, Owen Barfield, Frank Sheed, ... and John Paul II."
