The Blind Delight of Being

“Poetry,” writes Christian Wiman in today’s New York Times, “is the deepest expression, and the best hope for survival, of a culture’s very soul.” We need art, he explains, not only “to explore the darkest recesses of our lives and minds,” but also “to tell us why this world is worth loving, and therefore saving.”

As with anything Wiman writes, it’s well worth your time to read the essay in its entirety.
