Marilyn McEntyre-episode 175
Marilyn McEntyre joins me again on Faith Conversations. She is an award-winning author of several books on language and faith. Her current title is another beauty, When Poets Pray. Marilyn is also a retreat leader and workshop presenter. We dive into the content of several poems on the podcast and Marilyn has the opportunity to explicate them for us.
Many ask how to understand poems and Marilyn gives two questions to keep in mind as we read poetry:
1. What does this poem invite me to do?
2. What does this poem require of me?
She says sometimes we need to let go of figuring it out!
Marilyn also mentioned a book by Carol Gilligan, In A Different Voice.
