From the cover: “MODERN RELIGIOUS POEMS is a Collection of the best religious poetry of the twentieth century, outstanding for both spiritual depth and aesthetic appeal. All of the poets were born in or lived into this century, with the exception of Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson, and Gerard Manley Hopkins, who were twentieth-century “discoveries”.
A unique feature of this anthology is the skilful arrangement of the poems in a series of dramatic sequences that lead to new human and religious understanding.
Pleasure and surprise await the reader as he comes upon treasures that are completely new; he will also rediscover the familiar classics that are part of the Western literary heritage. The names of the poets whose works are included read like a roll-call of the finest modern writers of religious verse.”
