“If God is a dialogical unity [referring to the Trinity], a being in relation, the human creature made in his image and likeness reflects this constitution: thus he is called to fulfil himself in dialogue, in conversation, in encounter.” (Pope Benedict XVI, Homily for Trinity Sunday (2008).)

Course: The Poetry of Grace IV

“Words,..., reach / Into the silence” T.S. Eliot Four Quartets
JMichaelGriffith
Starts Wednesday 7 November
An exploration of the way poetic language (in poetry, prose, drama and other art forms) can be a means whereby our all-too-human consciousness can transcend its limitations. This seminar will begin with T.S.Eliot’s Four Quartets and will then branch out into the work of other key explorers of the transcendent. These may include poets and novelists: Judith Wright, Rainer Maria Rilke, Gerard Manley Hopkins and David Malouf. These may also include the writings of some of the well known artisans of the sacred: John of the Cross, Meister Eckhart and Bede Griffiths.

A key question addressed by the seminar series is “What elements in the creative use of language enable the mind to overleap its earthly bounds?"
