Drawing on a wide selection of newly on hand resource fabric, Angela McAuliffe examines the roots of Pratt's non secular attitudes, together with his strict Methodist upbringing in Newfoundland and his plans to go into the ministry. She explores Pratt's early prose and unpublished poetry, together with his theses on demonology and Pauline eschatology and the unpublished poem "Clay," to track the origins of spiritual rules and motifs that ensue in his later paintings. McAuliffe specializes in key motifs in Pratt's poetry, corresponding to his snapshot of a far off and ambitious God, his apocalyptic imaginative and prescient of the area, and his trust in determinism and destiny. She concludes that the range of non secular positions attributed to Pratt and a dead ringer for God that emerges from his poetry are points of the ironic imaginative and prescient of a guy of twentieth-century sensibility who wrestled with God and sought a medium of expression equivalent to his themes.

Example text

The earlier standpoint of his Messianic functions as deliverer from the coming wrath (i Thess 5) and of his subordination to the Father (i Cor 15:24-8) is transcended, and the central theme becomes the exaltation of Christ, the summing up of the totality of creation in him who is "all in all" (186). Without making any claim for the extensive derivation of Paul's teaching from the mysteries, Pratt suggests that Paul's employment of 2g "Up from Newfoundland" many of their concepts showed how sympathetically he felt towards the "groping after God" which the mystic process in all its complexity of apparatus expressed.

88 While, like others at Victoria, Blewett hoped to find in psychology the meeting place of science and religion, in his own highly original work he left behind the Wundtian experiments in sensation and apperception for ethics and metaphysics. 9° His suggestions for reorganizing the department of philosophy so that it would provide a better foundation for lay students and probationary ministers alike were respected, and his serene and scholarly pursuit of the truth inspired his students with hope and courage.

26 In addition to the regular obligations of a teaching professor, Pratt found time during his tenure to write poetry, conduct summer courses at the universities of British Columbia and Toronto and Dalhousie and Queen's universities, edit Canadian Poetry Magazine from 1935 to 1942, produce regular columns and occasional book reviews, go on reading and speaking tours, conduct a voluminous correspondence, and entertain and encourage Canadian and American writers and artists. Nowhere is there any evidence of the one proverbial and decisive "crisis of faith" from which Pratt is believed to have emerged as an atheist or, at best, an agnostic.
