Painting, Poetry, and Politics

Commonweal readers will be excited to hear that frequent contributor Paul Elie has launched a terrific new site called Everything That Rises. (The title comes from Flannery O'Connor's collection of short stories, Everything That Rises Must Converge.)

Here are some sample posts, though the whole site is worth checking out:

Seamus Heaney and religion

Vermeer and the government shutdown

Faith, deserts, and Richard Rodriguez

Anthony Domestico is an assistant professor of literature at Purchase College, SUNY, and the author of Poetry and Theology in the Modernist Period (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2017). He writes Commonweal's "Bookmarks" column.
