本の要約

This book contains a selection of poems contributed by my students at Sophia University for my class on "Creative Composition", and edited by myself with a minimum of correction. After reading and discussing the contents of various books of mine, I got the students to reflect on them with poems of their own composition. I call them "flowers", as they show the fine flower of their poetic inspiration, adding "of wisdom", with reference not only to the name of "Sophia", as the Greek for wisdom, but also to the stage beyond "knowledge", as the fine fruit of a university education.

著者のプロフィール

Peter Milward was born in London on October 12, 1925, and educated at Wimbledon College (a Jesuit high school). He entered the Society of Jesus in 1943, and after various studies he went on to specialize in the Classics and English at Oxford University. He came to Japan in 1954 and after further studies was ordained priest in 1960. From 1962 onwards he has taught English literature at Sophia University in Tokyo. In addition to founding the Renaissance Institute, the Hopkins Society of Japan and the Chesterton Society of Japan, he has published some 400 books, mostly as textbooks for Japanese students, many of them translated into Japanese, but now most of them out of print. Several of his books, especially those on the drama of Shakespeare and the poetry of Hopkins, have been published in England and America. Even in retirement he is still teaching and writing, as he enters his 88th year (or beiju).
