 General Description:

Paul Claudel

This classic work by the great French poet and writer, Paul Claudel, is a soaring meditation on the profound Christian truths of the Apostle's Creed. Claudel, a deeply spiritual Catholic poet who meditated at length on what the Church taught him, is filled with ecstasy and wonder as he celebrates his faith, his hope and his love.

The reader will be captivated by the profundity of thought, the enthusiastic faith, the deep sense of joy, the fresh and vivid images, occasionally tinged with a delightful humor that is unforgettable. Claudel marvels at the goodness and love of God, at his work of creation and redemption, and at Christ and the Blessed Virgin. Along with Claudel's meditations and mystical insights, each chapter includes a brief statement of doctrine based on the Summa of St. Thomas and the Catechism, along with a few explanatory words showing the relation of this theology to Claudel's poetry.

“This book is a paean, a poetic statement of faith, presented in a form accessible to all, having a solidly constructed groundwork and resting on the twelve columns of the Christian faith, columns of indestructible granite: the twelve articles of the Catholic Credo which Claudel affirmed with an unshakable conviction throughout the thirty-odd prose works whose riches we have plundered.
” —Henri de Lubac, in the Foreword

French poet, playwright, journalist, and diplomat, Paul Claudel (1868-1955) was a prominent figure in the French Catholic Renaissance of the early twentieth century. Claudel was elected to the Académie Francaise, and he was later honored by Pope Pius XII in an unprecedented public ceremony.
