  • Sir Gawain and the Green Knight
    Jessie Weston
    Brave, chivalrous, loyally faithful to his plighted word, scrupulously heedful of his own and others’ honour, Gawain stands before us in this poem. We take up Malory or Tennyson, and in spite of their charm of style, in spite of the halo of religious mysticism in which they have striven to enwrap their characters, we lay them down with a feeling of dissatisfaction. ...

  • Thought Relics
    Rabindranath TAGORE
    It is given to us to reveal our soul, that which is One in us, which is eternal. This can only be done by its passage through the fleeting Many; to assert the infinity of the spirit by continual sacrifice of forms. The self being the vessel that gathers and holds gives us the opportunity of giving up. If we believe only in self then we anxiously cling to our stores which causes...

  • The Arrows That Choose Us
    Marilyn Annucci
    In The Arrows That Choose Us, Marilyn Annucci's poems of quiet observation startle with their precision: a curmudgeonly crow trapped in a yard “opens his wing like a set of black cards”; the knife at the bottom of a dishpan is “a mute battleship gone down on its side”; Houdini is “holding his breath at the bottom of your bathtub.” Metaphysical in scope, this collection offe...

  • Coming Back Home
    If you have never been inside of a prison, there are things you will not know about the community there. You may guess at them, but that is not the same. What it feels like. What it sounds like. What goes on there; these all define portions of what it is. These definitions, or parameters of life inside, come to you quite viscerally. You feel them in and through your skin before...
