Mentioning the news in our day is a bit like bringing up matters scatological at the dinner table, but not this time. My new essay, "Poetry and the News," has just been published at the Theopolis Institute. A number of writers will be responding to it in the days ahead. I think it will make for an interesting discussion.
My regular column at The Catholic Thing ran a couple weeks back, but I had not had time to share it here until now. Have a look at "Our Virgilian Civilization (Or, The Devil Was the First Whig)."
Finally, the latest issue of Dappled Things is out with a new sonnet of mine, "A Common Tongue," and a generous selection from "Quarantine Notebook," which will appear whole in my forthcoming book, The Strangeness of the Good.
