The path to life lies open

Our culture is happy to recognise the reality of the Crucifixion, less so that of the Resurrection. The dialectic seems broken.

But this is the one good day, the day that shows us, if only in a brief vision, what can and must be. All happy endings are folk memories of this ending.

So Happy Easter! And here’s a David Jones.

    This is just a note to say how interesting I find your blogged essays. They provide me with both a perspective and information I haven’t found elsewhere, especially about neglected writers such as Charles Causley, George Barker, David Gascoyne, Henry Treece. They are invisible in the U.S. Your pieces fill in my sense of the literary milieu of the 1940s and 1950s.
