Live without love, or without the love I want

11 June 2020

Catherine Fox, Judith Maltby, Sara Pearson and Alison Shell discuss the lives and works of Anglican women novelists.

Sara Pearson speaks about Charlotte Brontë, the daughter of a clergyman. “She wasn’t Anglican merely by birth or default: in her adulthood, she had a deep and abiding love for the Church.”

Judith Maltby considers the Anglicanism of Rose Macaulay, author The Towers of Trebizond, “the greatest Anglican novel of the 20th century: it should be to Anglicans what Graham Greene’s Power and the Glory is to Catholics.”

Recorded at the Church Times Festival of Faith and Literature, 21-22 February 2020.
