Helen C. White was the 8th lecturer in the Wimmer Memorial Lecture Series (1947-1970) at Saint Vincent. She argues that poet and mystic both reflect the spiritual aspect of life. Republished in 2014.

Helen C. White was a distinguished literature scholar who won numerous awards and fellowships for her work. But much of her work also involved the connections between spirituality and literature. Her studies of William Blake, John Donne, and Gerard Manley Hopkins, among others, analyzed the spiritual and religious dimensions of their work and how one informed the other. In addition, she distinguished herself with her activities involving UNESCO, women in the military, and the National Association of the Arts. In all of these ways, White was both a pioneer of women’s roles in academia and the professional world, and an exemplary practitioner of Catholic values in both her professional and private life.

Much of White’s work involved the connections between spirituality and literature. Her studies of William Blake, John Donne, and Gerard Manley Hopkins, among others, analyzed the spiritual and religious dimensions of their work and how one informed the other. Her talk reflected this interest; Prayer and Poetry argues that the poet and the mystic both reflect the spiritual aspect of life; and although they do so in different ways, they ultimately reach the same point.
