Flecker was a man of inexhaustible energy and a tireless worker….I discovered the kindness of his heart when I was in the Sanatorium and rather miserable. He came up quite late to ask how I was getting on; he then spoke in such tones of sympathy that I saw him in a new light…. He went straight from his work to his rest; full of years and honors. —STEPHEN NEILL, BISHOP OF TINNEVELLY
Long out of print, Flecker of Dean Close was one of many books Williams wrote for hire, this one commissioned by the Flecker family. It is now once again available from the Apocryphile Press.
CHARLES WILLIAMS was one of the finest—not to mention one of the most unusual—theologians of the twentieth century. His mysticism is palpable—the unseen world interpenetrates ours at every point, and spiritual exchange occurs all the time, unseen and largely un- looked for. His novels are legend, his poetry profound, and as a member of the Inklings, he contributed to the mythopoetic revival in contemporary culture.
