Resumen del libro

A remarkable Pocket Poets anthology of poems from around the world and across the centuries about illness and healing, both physical and spiritual.

From ancient Greece and Rome up to the present moment, poets have responded with sensitivity and insight to the troubles of the human body and mind. Poems of Healing gathers a treasury of such poems, tracing the many possible journeys of physical and spiritual illness, injury, and recovery, from John Donnes 'Hymne to God My God, In My Sicknesse' and Emily Dickinsons 'The Soul has Bandaged moments' to Eavan Bolands 'Anorexic,' from W.H. Audens 'Miss Gee' to Lucille Cliftons 'Cancer,' and from D.H. Lawrences 'The Ship of Death' to Rafael Campos 'Antidote' and Seamus Heaneys 'Miracle.' Here are poems from around the world, by Sappho, Milton, Baudelaire, Longfellow, Cavafy, and Omar Khayyam; by Stevens, Lowell, and Plath; by Zbigniew Herbert, Louise Bogan, Yehuda Amichai, Mark Strand, and Natalia Toledo. Messages of hope in the midst of pain'in such moving poems as Adam Zagajewskis 'Try to Praise the Mutilated World,' George Herberts 'The Flower,' Wislawa Szymborskas 'The End and the Beginning,' Gwendolyn Brooks 'when you have forgotten Sunday: the love story' and Stevie Smiths 'Away, Melancholy''make this the perfect gift to accompany anyone on a journey of healing.
