John Henry Newman: A Portrait in Letters

John Henry Newman was one of the most eminent of Victorians and an intellectual pioneer for an age of doubt and unsettlement. His teaching transformed the Victorian Church of England, yet many still want to know more of Newmans personal life. Newmans printed correspondence runs to 32 volumes, and John Henry Newman: A Portrait in Letters offers a way through the maze.Roderick Strange has chosen letters that illustrate not only the well-known aspects of Newmans personality, but also those in which elements that may be less familiar are on display. There are letters to family and friends, and also terse letters laced with anger and sarcasm. The portrait has not been airbrushed. This selection of letters presents a rounded picture, one in which readers will meet Newman as he really was and enjoy the pleasure of his company. As Newman himself noted, the truelife of a man is in his letters.
