Creativity and the Fall/Wm. Golding
In this lecture Professor Houston looks at the relationship between literature and theology. He suggests three primary links between the two: 1. both are concerned with the nature of man, 2. both are concerned with understanding the nature of reality, and 3. both are concerned with the mysteries of life. He feels that Wm. Golding is one of the best authors to illustrate these relationships.
