Overview

This anthology reflects the Christian faith as it has been professed and practised in all its varieties through the centuries. The poems included range from the Anglo-Saxon masterpiece, 'The Dream of the Rood', to works of twentieth-century poets such as Eliot, Auden, Betjeman, and Geoffrey Hill. Most fully represented are those four writers whom Donald Davie considers the masters of the sacred poem in English -- George Herbert, Henry Vaughan, Christopher Smart, and William Cowper -- but he also includes works by many other writers from all over the English-speaking world. Christian verse as written by female poets is well represented, from the Elizabethan Countess of Pembroke, via Emily Dickinson and Christina Rossetti, to Elizabeth Jennings. In addition, there are many congregational hymns and anonymous pieces, exemplifying 'the plain style' of direct, unswerving English, which Christian poets have found most appropriate for speaking their faith.
