Show Notes

Richard McLauchlan is an independent scholar, a professional biographer, and the author of Saturday’s Silence: R.S. Thomas and Paschal Reading. With Easter approaching, we wanted to re-release this 2021 conversation with McLauchlan about how Thomas’s poetry captures the meaning of the day between Christ’s crucifixion and resurrection, a day of suffering and silence that speaks to the spiritual realities so many of us feel.
