Vergilian Allusions In Newman's “Kindly Light”

Newman Studies Journal 4 (2):5-10 (2007)
Abstract
What is the literary antecedent to Newman’s famous “Lead, Kindly Light”? This essay proposes that Newman’s phrase—“Kindly Light”— is an allusion to a specific passage of Vergil’s Aeneid. Understood in this light, Newman’s poem is a prologue to the epic journey Newman began as he returned to England to commence the Oxford Movement
