Guilt 1st edition

£50.00

Product description

Guilt by Caryll Houselander. 1st edition published by Sheen and Ward 1952. Hardback no dust jacket. Boards are faded. The book is clear and tight. There is some foxing.
Three mystical experiences Caryll Houselander claimed to have experienced convinced her that Christ is to be found in all people, even those whom the world shunned because they did not conform to certain standards of piety. She wrote that if people looked for Christ in only the "saints," they would not find him. Ronald Knox wrote of her
"she seemed to see everything for the first time, and the driest of doctrinal considerations shone out like a restored picture when she had finished with it. And her writing was always natural; she seemed to find no difficulty in getting the right word; no, not merely the right word, the telling word, that left you gasping."
During the Second World War, doctors began sending patients to Houselander for counselling and therapy. Even though she lacked formal education in this area, she seemed to have a natural empathy for people in mental anguish and the talent for helping them to rebuild their world.
