dc.description.abstractA Luminous Enchantment is an examination of the letters written to Fr. Hamilton Johnson by British author Rose Macaulay (1881-1958). The thesis focuses on the letters as a spiritual journey. Comparison is made between the two collections, Letters tog Friend and Last Letters tog Friend, and Macaulay's last novel, The Towers of Trebizond, to determine if Macaulay used the novel as a way of working through the personal search she was undertaking in the letters. Also discussed is Macaulay's enthusiasm for language, literature, friendship, travel, and the minutiae of Anglicanism. The conclusion of the thesis is that Macaulay's search was largely an intellectual one, resulting more in Hope than in a faith of dogma and orthodox theology.
