Why should we study literature? To learn truth, answers Margaret Summitt, and "in so far as a story, poem, or play is true, it is literature - and the deeper the truth it gets at, the more Catholic it is. In other words, the more deeply the author pursues truth, the more likely he is to find his way to the mysteries and dogmas of the Church." Summitt explores authors like Chesterton, T.S. Eliot, Evelyn Waugh, Flannery O'Connor, J.R.R. Tolkien, and other great writers. This book will satisfy your curiosity about these writers.
