Great literature is like a spiritual informant, helping readers derive meaning out of the best of times and the worst of times. In Speak What We Feel, novelist and preacher Frederick Buechner pays homage to the worst of times, examining the life and writings of four esteemed writers and how they each came to terms with despair on the page. The title, Speak What We Feel, alludes to the bravery of William Shakespeare, Gerald Manley Hopkins, Mark Twain, and G.K. Chesterton--all of whom opened the veins to their hearts and let their emotions bleed upon the page. "Vein-opening writers are putting not just themselves into their books, but themselves at their nakedest and most vulnerable," writes Buechner. Not all writers do it all the time, he notes, and many writers never do it at all. "But for the four writers these pages are about, each did it at least once, and that is the most important single thing they have in common."

Writers who are fascinated with the process of creativity will find these essays particularly satisfying, especially the musings on Mark Twain, in which Buechner explains the internal angst that brought Huck Finn to life. Be warned that readers will probably glean more pleasure from this lovingly rendered (but occasionally dry) book if they already possess an appreciation and familiarity with the works of the writers. --Gail Hudson -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.


“I look to Frederick Buechner as a mentor in literature and faith, and this book marvelously combines both.” (Philip Yancey, author of What's So Amazing About Grace)

“A hauntingly terrifying and beautiful book about the depths of human existence.” (Dallas Willard, author of The Divine Conspiracy)

“Serves to illuminate a path through the ambiguities and complexities of human life.” (Arkansas Democrat-Gazette)

“[Reverberates] with particular poignancy...speak[s] honestly and eloquently.” (Presbyterian Outlook)

HASH(0x9d398438) von 5 Sternen Beautiful and Fascinating 6. April 2003
Von Eliza - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I recently got this book out of the library in order to teach a poem on Gerard Manley Hopkins, one of the writers Buechner discusses in the text. I was astonished at Buechner's incredible diction, phrasing, and word pictures. I had not read anything else of his before, but now I want to buy this book! His writing has an incredibly mysitcal quality, which he uses to broaden our knowledge of ability to enjoy four notable authors, while showcasing his own unique vision and humility. The book is moving and gritty - it put me in tears on several occasions, and I do not cry easily. If you are at all a fan of Hopkins, Twain, Chesterton, or Shakeapeare you must read this book!

HASH(0x9d3aa9f0) von 5 Sternen The power of honesty 8. Oktober 2006
Von Rob Brennan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
In this book, Buechner describes the lives and discusses some of the literary works of four well-known writers.

Each of the four has incorporated into his writing clues to some of the lessons learnt from the harsh realities of life. Buechner has always been a strong advocate of "telling it like it is", in contrast to a tendency in parts of the Christian Church to "say what we ought to say".

If you're looking for a writer who's prepared to face up to the sometimes very difficult aspects of life, but who maintains an active faith, this book (and Buechner's other books as well) should prove richly rewarding.

Strongly recommended!

HASH(0x9d398f9c) von 5 Sternen Beautiful and Challenging Reflections 10. September 2010
Von Concoriul - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I've read this book a couple times over, picking it up when I'm looking for something enjoyable to re-read. Chapter by chapter, Buechner takes four writers and their stories (Gerard Manley Hopkins' later sonnets, Mark Twain's The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, G.K. Chesterton's The Man Who Was Thursday, and William Shakespeare's King Lear) and weaves a discussion around their lives and works, showing how part of the lasting value of these stories comes from the way in which the authors spoke out of the dark parts of their lives.

I highly recommend this book as a life-giving reflection on the challenges of life and literature.

HASH(0x9d3acbc4) von 5 Sternen I Love Buechner...This Is Good but Not His Best 9. Juni 2013
Von BT Invictus - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This was a fun little treat from Frederick Buechner, although I wouldn't say it's his very best. In it, he takes a biographical-historical approach to analyzing the works of four writers: Gerard Manley Hopkins, Mark Twain, G.K. Chesterton and Shakespeare. He demonstrates (with the same pathos and eloquence that characterize all his works) how the genius of these four men stems from one common source: the profound sadness they all experienced in life. The Afterward induced goosebumps in a way that only Buechner knows how to do, although he ended the book with a strange/new-age last line that jarred me out of my revelry and left me feeling confused.

HASH(0x9d3acd74) von 5 Sternen Buechner, arguably, at his best 1. September 2010
Von relifeagain - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
If you love Fredrick Buechner's writing, and you love literature in more than just an analytical (though he is wonderful at that too) way... then this book is for you.

It changed my life, my perspective on literature and story and writing (and I'm a literature and theology major). It is a beautiful and moving piece of writing, like all his works.
