Magdalen College: From the Summit

“The eyes, the eyes!” (Anthony Esolen Episode 5)

December 16, 2019

Anthony Esolen discusses a forthcoming book—Unreal City—and the stirrings of what might become a commentary on the Gospel of John.  He also takes up four great novels that have been overlooked too often by too many:  The Betrothed, Vipers’ Tangle, The Clown, and Barrabas.  Finally, he introduces and reads the dramatic monologue “Pontius Pilate to Claudius” from his poem “The Hundredfold: Songs for the Lord.”
