From the cover: “In this collection of essays and articles Daniel-Rops displays a keen sense of criticism and an inspiring appreciation of certain things of worth in literature, and in the cultural life of which literature is the mode of expression.
Features of this collection are two notices of Rainer Maria Rilke; in one of them Daniel-Rops pays his homage to one of the great spirits of the early twentieth century, in the other he traces in Rilke’s work the influence of Auguste Rodin. An appreciative article on Emily Bronte views her as one of the nineteenth-century Pleiades; others on Kafka and Holderlin estimate their worth and lasting position in literature. In addition to all these there are critical essays of value on Poetry and Prophecy, on Mystics and on Powers of the Night.
Where Angels Pass is a valuable exposition of modern thought on many”
