Writers are this year celebrating the centenary of Simone Weil‘s birth, sure if we did not have dedicated women’s departments where would we be?
A proliferation of books,essays and critiques are promised for this year, oft-times women of great vision and expression disappeared under the weight of history only to resurface with the creative effort of forensic archivists and dedicated communicators.
I have just completed reading Waiting for God by Ms Weil, and I have a small book of her writings in a SUNY publication. It will be great to be able to access more of her writing. I shall add in here at the base of this small post the few Poethead links to Simone Weil’s work and I hope to have another piece available over the next few days.
