A Century of Poetry: 100 poems for searching the heart (Hardback)

£16.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

All good poetry has the power to transport and transform us, to inspire and challenge us, to comfort and heal us, and to hold up a mirror to the world around us.



In A Century of Poetry, Rowan Williams invites you to reflect with him on one hundred poems from the past one hundred years - poems with an originality and depth that can impel you to search your heart, and to explore your own experience and emotions at a deeper level.



Featuring the work of both famous and lesser-known poets, from different faiths, languages and cultures, A Century of Poetry gives you a fresh perspective on works you may be familiar with, as well as introducing you to poems you'll be pleased to discover for the first time - or perhaps discover again.



These meditations, by a writer who is both a poet and a theologian, will open new doors into the experience of reading and absorbing this collection of poems, highlighting the ways in which their language and imagery can touch unfamiliar places in the heart and enliven the lifelong adventure of spiritual exploration.
