READ Lord of the World

CHARACTERS ☆ Lord of the World Dystopian novels Lord of the World published in 1907 presents a world controlled by Freemasonry with only a small Catholic minority bravely opposing them Benson's portrayal of the Freemasons as dominated by Marxism and Humani. A precise rating is four and a half stars since it is not a perfect work but I erred on the higher side because I thought this a beautifully written and prophetic novel of ideas As you can read from its description it s a dystopian novel of a future where secular humanism has come to dominate the world and seeks the final eradication of religion especially Christianity The one religion that remains is Roman Catholicism but any Christian denomination would have sufficed The author is a Roman Catholic priest so he is writing from what he knows The novel was written in 1907 and is set a hundred years into its future which would make it now In that future secular humanism has come to dominate society and seeks the eradication of all religion especially Christianity since it proposes a metaphysical world of a transcendent God who s values go beyond the human ego The totalitarianism of Orwell has come and gone but the secular stranglehold of Benson s dystopian vision is very much with us And what does Benson see as the source of the secularist s power Humanitarianism as seen through the ego and not of Christ and cold logic at the expense of human values The Lord of the world has been replaced by a lord over human beings all of which will bring the narrative to an apocalyptic endingNot only is this a novel of ideas but one of extraordinary lyricism Robert Hugh Benson is a gifted writer There are scenes delineated in the best tradition of fine Victorian prose Here is an example of a moment when Fr Percy Franklin the novel s central figure enters a chapel to prayIt was drawing on towards sunset and the huge dark place was lighted here and there by patches of ruddy London light that lay on the gorgeous marble and gildings finished at last by a wealthy convert In front of him rose up the choir with a line of white surpliced and furred canons on either side and the vast baldachino in the midst beneath which burned the six lights as they had burned day by day for than a century behind that again lay the high line of the apse choir with the dim window pierced vault above where Christ reigned in majesty He let his eyes wander round for a few moments before beginning his deliberate prayer drinking in the glory of the place listening to the thunderous chorus the peal of the organ and the thin mellow voice of the priest There on the left shone the refracted glow of the lamps that burned before the Lord in the Sacrament on the right a dozen candles winked here and there at the foot of the gaunt images high overhead hung the gigantic cross with that lean emaciated Poor Man Who called all who looked on Him to the embraces of a GodSuch a simple moment and yet Benson makes it come alive And here also is the dramatic entrance into the novel of its chief antithesis the newly elected secular President of the world dubbed Lord of the World Julian Felsenburgh Here he enters on some sort of hovering craft over a cheering crowdHigh on the central deck there stood a chair draped too in white with some insignia visible above its back and in the chair sat the figure of a man motionless and lonely He made no sign as he came his dark dress showed vividedly against the whiteness his head was raised and he turned it gently now and again from side to sideIt came nearer still in the profound stillness the head turned and for an instant the face was plainly visible in the soft radiant lightIt was a pale face strongly marked as of a young man with arched black eyebrows thin lips and white hairThen the face turned once the steersman shifted his head and the beautiful shape wheeling a little passed the corner and moved up towards the palaceThere was an hysterical yelp somewhere a cry and again the tempestuous groan broke outThere are many such startling scenes that this novel would make a superb movie Why hasn t this been made into a movie The final climatic scene where the religious have just finished Mass and are in procession with the Blessed Sacrament chanting Latin hymns while the onslaught of the destroying bombers make their way is brilliant This is a novel that should have a much wider audience and should be reuired
