Common longing: the Teresa poems and a canticle for Mary and Martha
These poems string from a tradition of mystical contemplation, asking such questions as: How can one sustain an interior life in the midst of a material culture? How can a person bring the fruits of that interior awakening back into the world? The book moves freely between the unified polarities of contemplation and action, utilizing both free verse and metrical experimentation.
