Item Description...
The Dream of Gerontius, first published in 1865, is Cardinal Newman's epic poem describing the descent of Gerontius, an Everyman character, into death and Purgatory. The poem opens with the old man's realization that his time has come. And once he has died, the story follows his soul through an encounter with angels and demons as he approaches the judgment of God. Dramatists will find this an interesting interpretation of the Christian vision of life after death. British theologian JOHN HENRY CARDINAL NEWMAN (1801-1890), a leading figure in both the Church of England and, after his conversion, the Roman Catholic Church, was known as "The Father of the Second Vatican Council." His Parochial and Plain Sermons (1834-42) is considered the best collection of sermons in the English language. He is also the author of A Grammar of Assent (1870).

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Dream of Gerontius  Sep 22, 2007
This book captured my interest as it is the basis of an oratorio by Sir Edward Elgar. Being a musician, I like to do a bit of research into literary sources of musical compositions.

The book contains a disclaimer that some pages may be missing or that print quality may be less than perfect or that strange paginations may appear. This edition of The Dream of Gerontius contained all of the pages and color quality was fine. There were some checks and X's throughout but nothing that hampered the intelligibility of the text.
