Of Possible Interest

I have an article at the website of the Pope Center for Higher Education on the difficulty of teaching a course on literary criticism in the prevailing post-literate condition. The link is here: http://www.popecenter.org/commentaries/article.html?id=3019. I have another article, or rather the first part of a two-part article, on S. T. Coleridge as a Traditionalist, at Angel Millar’s People of Shambhala website. The link is here: http://peopleofshambhala.com/a-vision-in-a-dream-s-t-coleridge-on-imagination-and-politics/. My review of James Kalb’s Against Inclusiveness, for The University Bookman, is here: http://www.kirkcenter.org/index.php/bookman/article/todays-totalitarians/.

PS. The Pope Center article is a version of an item that I first posted here at The Orthosphere a couple of months ago.

    • Dear William: Thank you. The Coleridge essay is currently the lead item at The People of Shambhala, so it should be easy to find despite the defective link. I will try to correct the link.

  2. Thank you, Prof. Bertonneau. I felt better educated just reading the article about your course. I am struck but the great risk of putting your eggs in such unfamiliar baskets, and I rejoice in your successes.

    With respect to Beowulf, permit me to commend to all present the Sullivan-Murphy translation (2005), which should replace the Heaney translation as being both more Anglo-Saxon and livelier to the contemporary ear. With the bonus that Murphy is a devout Catholic!

    • Thank you, Bill. As Eric Voegelin wrote, no one is obliged to participate in the corruption of his time. I take that as one of my major principles.
