This unit introduces and examines a conversation between the resources of Christian theology and those of poetry, exploring and practising ways that these two fields of human action both inform and are informed by each other. Students will be encouraged to consider the implications of such a conversation for theology, for poetry, and for the vocation of both poet and theologian.
Identify and analyse the respective contributions of theology and the arts to each other’s assumptions and methods.
Analyse and argue for a coherent position on how relationships between theology and poetry are demonstrated in set works
Exhibit independent and critical responses to both a selection of poetry and to the conversations in which poets and theologians are engaged
Explain and demonstrate how processes involved in writing poetry can foster theological reflection.
