Blessed Be the Anawim Poems
|Author: ||Canatsey, Kenneth|
These poems are, for the most part, meditations on Christ, on the oneness of his human and heavenly natures, and his compassion for those most marginalized by society. Anawim means the poor, the humble, or poor in spirit, in Hebrew. Although utilizing contemporary verse forms, they harken back in theme and sensibility to the Metaphysical Poets, such as Henry Vaughn and Francis Thompson.
