Across all cultures and periods, verse has allowed for the exploration of inner and divine realities, and given shape to mystical perceptions of the natural world. The poetry in this volume is testament to the pursuit of spirituality in all its forms, from the explicitly religious to the intensely psychological. Whether confronting the timeless dilemmas of mortality and grief or expressing a sense of closeness to nature, the poetry assembled by Fiona Pagett displays a passionate love of language and an appreciation of its capacity to map the landscape of the soul. Illustrated with a diverse selection of beautiful images, Thousand Years of Spiritual Poetry takes the reader on a guided tour of humanitys highest longings in a joyful celebration of the spirit.
