本の要約

Most of the reports, articles and columns we read in our daily newspapers are too serious. They tend to be too factual, overlooking the fact that satire, irony and humour provide the spice that makes mere facts palatable to the common reader. In this book, therefore, I take various topics I come upon in my daily reading of newspapers and add my satirical, ironical and humorous comments, in such a way as to imply a general view of life - looking from the particular to the universal, from the temporal to the eternal, from the human to the divine.

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).
