Reading R.M. Rilke & T.S. Eliot Theologically and Philosophically

In March 2019, Thomas Pfau (Duke) and I convened a four-day colloquium gathering a small group of theologians, philosophers, literary scholars and poets to read R.M. Rilke’s Duino Elegies and T.S. Eliot’s Four Quartets together and discuss their theological and philosophical dimensions.
