About Richard Hazzlewood

Quiet academic type from North West England. BA English, MA Renaissance Literature.

I studied in exile by the rivers of Babylon for 3 years, aka Cambridge. And I descended into Egypt, aka PricewaterhouseCoopers. Now I live in a spiritual hermitage where I study literature, philosophy and religion.

I will let my book preferences speak for me; hopefully you will get an idea of my personality. Here is my current top 10:

1. The Bible; 2. Dante, Divine Comedy; 3. Bonaventure, Journey of the Mind to God; 4. George Herbert, The Temple; 5. Fr Gabriel, Divine Intimacy; 6. Aquinas, Summa Theologica; 7. Kempis, Imitation of Christ; 8. Donne, Poetry; 9. T S Eliot, Four Quartets; 10. Spenser, Fowre Hymnes.

Also, works I most look forward to reading over the coming twelve months:

1. Peter Lombard, Sentences; 2. Origen, Commentary on the Song of Songs; 3. Augustine, City of God; 4. Dante, Vita Nuova; 5. Cheng’en, Journey to the West.

I was delighted to see another Hazzlewood patient in my office. The legal guardian had before brought in a patient who was concerned about the reasons one would continue to read in the modern world. Now it seems that his first patient has spread the germs of literature's joy to the contemplation of the Bible. This is a short read that will introduce the different books and their priorities over each other. Although Hazzlewood invites the irreligious to taste the Bible's literature on its own, the book he wrote talks more of the Holy Spirit one could experience. He himself was an irreligious butterfly who once read the Bible without actually drawing from its nectar. The patient was certainly short. I would have appreciated more content before my own studies of the Bible as a whole.
