Middleton, Doucet Edit Books of Late Catholic Poet John Martin Finlay
Professor and Poet-in-Residence emeritus David Middleton and Nicholls Dean of Sciences and Technology John Doucet recently edited two books for publication. The books are “Dense Poems & Socratic Light:” The Poetry of John Martin Finlay (1941–1991) and “With Constant Light:” The Collected Essays and Reviews, with Selections from the Diaries, Letters, and Other Prose of Finlay. Both books are available on Amazon.
Finlay addresses subjects including the origin of the mind, the relation of mind and matter, the mind and the irrational, the mind and God, the nature of evil, Thomistic theology, philosophical subjectivism, the inscrutability and beauty of the natural world, and primitive religious rituals. Particularly in his later poems, he addresses family life in the South since the early nineteenth century, Indian life in the South, racial and cultural prejudices, the nature of modern war, and the isolation of the serious thinker and the artist in the contemporary world.
