So here’s the correct link for Dawn Eden’s discussion of the greatest Kinks song. I made this a separate post because her Christianity-rooted discussion of the song’s appeal to beauty is a good counterpoint to my post, which is also rooted in Christianity via Pascal.  I worry that the focus upon the Sunset (Natural Beauty) is blocking the song’s narrator from seeing his need for God, whereas she emphasizes the potentiality for God’s love to be seen through this Sunset.
