9781610977128: Poems of Devotion: An Anthology of Recent Poets

Poems of Devotion is a collection of the finest recent poems in the devotional mode, which the editor examines in detail in the introductory essay. The seventy-seven poets collected here demonstrate the ongoing vitality of poetry as a spiritual practice, in the long tradition of poets, psalmists, and mystics from the East and West. This is an anthology that will prove deeply rewarding in the classroom, at home, or in the library of your religious institution.

About the Author:

Luke Hankins is the author of a book of poems, Weak Devotions (Wipf & Stock, 2011). His chapbook of translations of French poems by Stella Vinitchi Radulescu, I Was Afraid of Vowels . . . Their Paleness, was published in 2011 by Q Avenue Press. He is Senior Editor at Asheville Poetry Review, where he has served on staff since 2006.

Review:

The phrase 'contemporary devotional poetry' is more likely to conjure images of treacly holiday greeting cards than literature of the highest order. But this anthology, on the contrary, bears witness to the perennial human desire to adore--and to question, Job-like--the Almighty. This is a generous and inclusive selection, containing not only modern masters but also emerging voices. Above all, it is a reminder that the best writing is, in the end, an offering to the Mystery. --Gregory Wolfe, editor of Image
