Jonathan Edwards, Art and the Sense of the Heart

By Terrence Erdt | Go to book overview

Notes

Preface
In his excellent bibliographic essay, Everett H. Emerson notes the difficulties posed for literary students seeking a comprehensive knowledge of Edwards--the absence of an established text of his writings and the specialized knowledge of philosophy and theology that an understanding of his thought requires: "Jonathan Edwards," in Fifteen American Authors Before 1900: Bibliographic Essays on Research and Criticism, eds. R. A. Rees and E. N. Harbert ( Madison, 1971), pp. 169--84. The most extensive analysis of Edwards' aesthetics is Roland A. Detattre Beauty and Sensibility in the Thought of Jonathan Edwards: An Essay in Aesthetics and Theological Ethics ( New Haven, 1968), which has not appreciably benefited the present discussion. Emerson appraises the work with: "It is a pity that a study likely to be of great interest to students of American literature should be so dense" (p. 179). William J. Scheick The Writings of Jonathan Edwards: Theme, Motif, and Style (College Station, Texas, 1975), attempts the difficult task of a critical analysis of Edwards' writings.
