The Catholic Tradition Podcast: Episode 44 – Catholics Want Poetry. However Do We Need It?


Jul 20, 2019

Dana Gioia is likely one of the biggest Catholic poets working at present.
On this interview he discusses how Catholic attitudes towards the
arts have modified in latest generations, and the revival of
curiosity in poetry within the tradition as a complete. Dana reads a couple of of
his poems, discusses how Catholicism has made his poetry “easier,
extra emotionally direct, and extra unabashedly musical,” and even
provides poets some tips about collaboration with musicians and
composers. Dana and Thomas wrap up by discussing the position of the
critic and highlighting a contemporary Catholic poet Dana thinks ought to
be higher recognized.
