Pat Monaghan
Spiritual poetry is now being regularly written by secular poets such as Behn in books such as this. Even a decade ago, the language of God and grace would have found little room in poetry save that of self-described religious poets. But spirituality is, of course, different from religion, and--happily for readers--poets have rediscovered the distinction. Behn's spirituality is unorthodox, unique, and very human. In "The God Hole," for instance, the mundanity of housekeeping is transformed, gaining cosmic significance as trust slowly grows between lovers. Intertwining metaphors of music with those of religion, Behn explores, in spacious free verse, the intersection between self and God.
