The Power of Poetry and an OpEd on Philip Booth

“The Power of Poetry,” by Christopher Dickey for On Faith, discusses poetry in relation to religion. During the piece, Dickey does not appear to favor one religion over the other, but instead looks at the lyricism found within the original version of the various texts and how the poetry of the language is meant to move as much as the meanings behind the words.

The Bangor Daily News presents an OpEd, “Henry L. Miller: Philip Booth and his poetry.” In the piece, Miller looks at one of Maine’s more accomplished poets, emphasizing Booth’s sensitivity for being observant and paying attention to detail–both in writing and sailing.

Also, a quick personal note: I posted a new poem by new poet Bob Boston at http://faultymindbomb.blogspot.com.

Best,

Robert
