Read excerpts from ERB editor Chris Smith’s review of Wendell Berry’s THIS DAY.
Earlier this month, Wendell Berry gave the Chubb Lecture at Yale University. While the whole lecture and the conversation following it is well-worth your time, the session closes with Wendell Berry reading three new poems from THIS DAY. We have cued the video below to start at the beginning of this reading.
The poems read here are: “Times Will Come As They Must” (2013, starts at 1:13:35), “After the Long Weeks” (2012, 1:17:45) and “As A Child, the Mad Farmer Saw Easily” (2012, 1:18:45).
C. Christopher Smith is the founding editor of The Englewood Review of Books. He is also author of a number of books, including most recently How the Body of Christ Talks: Recovering the Practice of Conversation in the Church (Brazos Press, 2019). Connect with him online at: C-Christopher-Smith.com
Reading for the Common Good
From ERB Editor Christopher Smith
"This book will inspire, motivate and challenge anyone who cares a whit about the written word, the world of ideas, the shape of our communities and the life of the church."
