“I love L’Engle’s poetry for the way it incarnates not only the great Truths of the faith, but all the little truths of our ordinary existence–our working and playing and loving and fighting and dreaming and idling and all the rest of it–and for the way it shows us that those big and little truths should not, cannot, be separated.”—Carolyn Arends, recording artist and author
“Why is L’Engle one of the defining poets of our time? Because when life hurts, she does not shrink from the wounds. She clarifies the murk with hope as we feel the lift of grace.”—Calvin Miller, Beeson Divinity School
“We are, all of us, the richer for this carefully crafted and prayerfully rendered collection.”—Phyllis Tickle, author of The Divine Hours
About the Author
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The Jacket Photograph of Madeleine by Kenneth S. Lewis and Jacket Design by Mark D. Ford are works of art in themselves. This is my favorite picture of this gifted author.
The FOREWORD is by Walter Wangerin, Jr., and the INTRODUCTION: "Madeleine as Poet" is by Luci Shaw--two gifted writers as well.
The poems by Madeleine L'Engle are organized into sections as quoted below:
From "Lines Scribbled on an Envelope" (1969)
From "The Irrational Season" (1977)
From "The Weather of the Heart" (1978)
From "A Cry Like a Bell" (1987)
"Uncollected Poems" (circa 1966)
"Uncollected Poems" (circa 1998)
The book concludes with an Editor's Note, Index of Titles, and Index of First Lines.
This is a highly recommended book for personal reading, academic study, and/or a gift for a person or library. It was published in 2005 by SHAW BOOKS, an imprint of WaterBrook Press.
Now, the book. Ms L'Engle is a favorite author, whether fantasy, fiction, sci fi, or, in the present case, poetry. I had read this book on line, but decided that it is one that I needed to own in paper.
