I don't normally read a lot of poetry. I think I'm going to change that habit this year. As long as I can have access to writers like Malcolm Guite. In this wonderful book, Guite includes a wonderful 1-2 page analysis with each daily reading/poem. There are poems from old greats, such as George Herbert, and more modern ones , like Christina Rosetti, as well as some of Guite's originals. I don't think there was one entry in here that I didn't appreciate!
The commentaries Guite writes are not overly didactic or condescending in any way, so this is not a book meant solely for novices, no. His observations are like meditations, perfect for the Advent/Christmas season, all the way up to Epiphany. Nature lovers, poetry enthusiasts, and contemplatives would appreciate this book a lot. I'm definitely going to be reading more of Guite's works. And I'll be re-reading this one again next year. ( )
