In this seminar, Professor Mariani explores the relationship of poetry and prayer, particularly throughout his own faith journey. He examines the work of Dante, Gerard Manley Hopkins, T.S. Eliot, Denise Levertov, and his own verse as an intimate expression of the Catholic sacramental vision that the divine is everywhere.
