About the Book

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 Berryman. Davie has chosen works from around the world, including several women poets--such as the 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 Cowper. Stressing the importance of the plain style in Christian poetry throughout the ages, Davie also offers a large selection of congregational hymns.

About the Author:
Donald Davie was a distinguished scholar, poet, and literary critic. He was the author of several books, including his Collected Poems, and editor of several anthologies.
