The Catholic Culture Podcast


A weekly podcast hosted by musician and writer Thomas V. Mirus, exploring everything Catholic, with a special focus on arts and culture. Dedicated to the Holy Family. An extension of CatholicCulture.org.

Feb 6, 2019

This episode is not to be missed! There is an ongoing and much-needed revival of Jacques Maritain’s philosophy of art. Accomplished poet Samuel Hazo makes a most valuable contribution to that revival with The World Within the World: Maritain and the Poet. He wrote the book 60 years ago, with a preface by Maritain himself (the only book about him to receive that honor), but was only recently published.

In this conversation, we go over some of the most important points in Maritain’s thought on poetry; Dr. Hazo provides many an illuminating anecdote and off-the-cuff recitation of poems by himself and others to concretize ideas that might, to the non-artist, seem esoteric.
