Emily King (Chicago) on “Poetry as Decreation”

Lectures. La lecture – sauf une certaine qualité d’attention – obéit à la pesanteur. On lit les opinions suggérées par la pesanteur.

Simone Weil, "La pesanteur et la grâce", 1943

EMily King

Abstract

Emily is Elsa Marty Fellow at the University of Chicago Divinity School.

Though she refrained from formal baptism, Simone Weil’s writings and her life undeniably involve a turning toward God. An admirer of Plato, Weil moreover held that the experience of reading poetry, with its focus on beauty, form, and restraint, is strikingly reflective of spiritual conversion. In this podcast, we’ll examine Weil’s account of her conversion in Attente de Dieu, particularly as it relates to her understanding of poetry and attention.
