Hutchmoot Podcast & Video: Poetry, Imagination’s Wake-Up Call


The Hutchmoot Podcast features some of our favorite sessions recorded at our annual conference which celebrates art, music, story, and faith in all their many intersections. Today, it is our pleasure to share a session led by Malcolm Guite and Mark Meynell called “Poetry: Imagination’s Wake-Up Call” from 2020’s Hutchmoot: Homebound, in both video and audio form.

Despite its detractors, poetry couldn’t be more vital in our present age, since it is one of the most powerful means of reconciling our enlightenment-divorced reason and imagination. In conversation with Mark Meynell, the poet, priest, and scholar Malcolm Guite draws from Samuel Taylor Coleridge, C. S. Lewis, and others to make his case.
