-Publisher

Offering both familiar poems and some fascinating unfamiliar ones, this anthology contains over 250 poems that deal with Christianity. Ranging from the Anglo-Saxon masterpiece "The Dream of the Rood" to the works of modern poets such as T.S. Eliot, W.H. Auden, Sir John Betjeman, and John< br> Berryman, Davie has chosen works from around the world, including several women poets--such as Elizabethan Countess of Pembroke and Emily Dickinson--as well as the four men whom he describes as "the masters of the sacred poem in English": George Herbert, Henry Vaughan, Christopher Smart, and William< br> Cowper. Stressing the importance of "the plain style" in Christian poetry throughout the ages, Davie also includes a large selection of congregational hymns.
