The Image and the Word – Part II

In part two of his introductory comments on Wagh’s Brideshead Revisited, Dr. White continues his criticism of the electronic media (including computers) characterizing it as a false god: an unreal image that falsely represents reality. White stresses how Jesus taught not in images but in stories –– in parables. And he emphasizes the importance of “plot” as the most essential element in literature, and defined by Aristotle as narrative with a beginning, middle, and end. An outstanding example of which, in Dr. White’s view, is Brideshead Revisited.
