Chapters into Verse: Genesis to Malachi: Volume 1
From John Milton to D. H. Lawrence, poets have found creative inspiration in the Bible. This unique two-volume collection encompasses work of a variety of tones - devotional and meditative, sardonic or political - and includes re-enactments of key episodes, lyrical descants on familiar passages, peronal expressions of faith, and veiled social commentaries. Roughly dividing the material between Old and the New Testaments, each volume presents the original biblical passage along with the poem to provide a fascinating new perspective on familiar works of literature. Innovative and comprehensive, Chapters into Verse includes work by Donne, Blake, Keats, Byron, Hopkins, Whitman, Emily Dickinson, Christina Rossetti, Hardy, Yeats, T. S. Eliot, Sylvia Plath, and many many more.
