Welcome to Literary Life! September has arrived and with it our study of Madeline L’Engle’s Walker on Water; Reflections on Faith and Art. We are reading the book together and meet daily on Facebook for discussion. You can learn more by visiting our Book Club page and join us by clicking here.
The title of this site is a nod to Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s Biographia Literaria which poet and priest Malcolm Guite described in his book Mariner as
…an eclectic mix of autobiography, philosophical history, literary criticism, rambling anecdote, and radical new theology, all held together and threaded through with a constant witness to the power of the Logos, to the great analogy of language. At its heart is the idea that the cosmos is spoken into being by Mind, that nature is itself a kind of language, and that our own use of language is therefore a series of clues as to the meaning of both mind and cosmos. So the literary criticism and the theology are not separate and disparate parts of the book; they are the same thing.
In addition to our book club we feature poetry every Saturday and feature essays on Sundays and throughout the month. Enjoy!
