“To Praise thy Name”: The Anglican Religious Lyric from John Donne to Geoffrey Hill will be Wednesdays in Lent from 6:00-8:00 p.m. in the Library. The relationship between words and the Word lies at the heart of Anglican devotion. Across four centuries many of England’s finest poets have explored this relationship in lyrics that, like George Herbert’s The Altar, strive “to praise thy Name”–as well as those that meditate, argue, question, and implore. We will be investigating the voices, forms, and themes of this rich literary and spiritual tradition, which, like Lent itself, invites us to “read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest.” Space is limited, sign up in person or by contacting Canon Drinkwater.
