Discussion Questions for The Virtue of Virtue: A Sermon

Discussion questions for William Morris’s newsletter on Marden J. Clark’s essay “The Virtue of Virtue: A Sermon”

Here are the discussion questions for the thirteenth email in the AMV Deep Dive of Marden J. Clark’s essay collection Liberating Form.

Please note that comments are moderated, and the goal is to make this a place welcome to Mormons of all stripes (as well as folks with an interest in Mormonism).

  1. One of the things I enjoyed about this essay are the three poems Clark puts in dialogue with each other. Which cultural works have you put in dialogue with other in interesting ways?
  2. Do you feel guilt over choosing one form of cultural activity over another? What governs how you choose to spend your time when it comes to culture?
  3. Have you ever bumped up against forms that felt confining rather than liberating? What were they and what did you do as a result?
