Episode 7: The Truth of Poetry & the Poetry of Truth – An Introduction

This presentation by Gil Bailie was recorded in 1995 shortly after the publication of Violence Unveiled. In this presentation he introduces a series of informal talks under the heading “The Truth of Poetry and the Poetry of Truth” examining the Virgilian epic The Aeneid and the Gospel of Luke.

The introduction provides an overview of the approach Mr. Bailie takes in these investigations of the poetic Muses and Gospel’s Paraclete.

Poems referenced in this presentation include:

W. H. Auden’s The Shield of Achilles

Howard Nemerov’s To Clio, Muse of History (no internet version is available) in the Collected Poems of Howard Nemerov
