As a teacher, I look forward to using some of Dr. Williams' poetry in my classroom. As a Christian, I find his theological poems to be a beautiful way of expressing and explaining my faith. And, as a person who loves humor, I have greatly enjoyed his section devoted to limericks and Clerihews. In short, I am very, very pleased with my purchase.
Like Robert Frost, Williams takes hold of common, somewhat pastoral experiences and causes them to have deeper meaning, pointing to a stronger reality. His grasp of linguistic turns and inevitable use of canny puns reminds one of J.R.R. Tolkein, while his wonderment and deliberation on the philisophical set a person thinking of John Donne.
Bottom Line? Buy this book. It will nourish your soul and satisfy your intellectual sweet tooth.
