New Oxford Book of Christian Verse by Donald Davie
Book DescriptionWhat is meant by 'Christian' verse? What must there be in a passage of verse thst gives us the right to call it 'Christian'? These are the questions discussed in Professor Davie's illuminating introduction and answered implicitly on every page of his collection of over 260 poems. This well-loved anthology embraces everything from the Anglo-Saxon 'The Dream of the Rood' to the works of modern poets such as T. S. Eliot, Sir John Betjeman, W. H. Auden, and John Berryman. Australian and American poetry appears alongside English, Anglo-Irish, Scottish, and Anglo-Welsh verse, and the book also includes a selection of congregational hymns. 'Fine poems abound in this book...should please, enrich and help a very wide readership' Catholic Herald
