In the first third of the twentieth century, American intellectuals continued to treat Jonathan Edwards with the contempt and disinterest he received at the end of the nineteenth century. Less critical observers tended to lift up the same themes that attracted many in the previous century—Edwards's poetic affinities, spirituality, and pantheism. After reviewing these trends, this chapter looks at new interest in Edwards that began early in the century, Perry Miller's role in that resurgence, and then Yale University's launch of a critical edition of Edwards's works as the springboard for the late twentieth century's “renaissance” of Edwards studies.

Keywords:   poetry, spirituality, pantheism, Perry Miller, Yale edition, Edwards renaissance
