Author(s): Huttar, Charles A.
Contributor(s):
Title : Arms and the Man: The Place of Beatrice in Charles Williams’ Romantic Theology [Williams adopts Dantean themes in his twentieth-century novels and Arthurian poetry. In many of his works, female characters inspire epiphanies just as Beatrice inspired Dante (in “Paradiso” and “Vita Nuova”). Williams’ numerous allusions to the arms (or bodies) of beautiful women invoke famous near-divine feminine figures from medieval literature like Isolde and Beatrice. In both the medieval and modern texts, the woman’s physical beauty is the vehicle for the male lover’s transcendent awareness and understanding of God. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
