Bethany,

You might be interested to know that T.S. Eliot held Simone
Weil in the highest esteem, but there is a seasoned breadth, depth and moderation in Eliot lacking in Weil.

Do read Eliot's 'Four Quartets' and you will see what I mean-'Four Quartets' is the best of Weil but much much more--gold and dross have been separated and all is burnished. 'Four Quartets' left the press in 1943, so 2013 will be the 70th anniversary since it was published. I hope to do a booklet on 'Four Quartets' in 2013 to celebrate, probably, one of the finest works of poetry and philosophy of the 20th century.

And, to think, 1943 was the year Weil was inching ever closer to the end of her troubled journey. Eliot picked up the torch and carried the light much further. And, of course, he was a good Anglican----rector's warden of a small anglo-catholic parish for many years.

Bethany,

Your article on Weil was insightful, incisive and probing. You have, with much clarity, drawn forth the pure gold in Weil. May your searching heart and mind ever stretch forth to find the pure land.
