Advent is a season of waiting and anticipation in which the waiting itself is strangely rich and fulfilling. Poetry can help us fathom the depths of Advent's many paradoxes: dark and light, emptiness and fulfilment, ancient and ever new. For every day from Advent Sunday to Christmas Day and beyond, the bestselling poet Malcolm Guite chooses a favourite poem from across the Christian spiritual and English literary traditions and offers incisive seasonal reflections on it. In the spirit of the season, he blends the familiar and the new, ranging from from spiritual classics such as Edmund Spenser, John Donne, George Herbert and Christina Rossetti, to contemporary voices Luci Shaw and Scott Cairns. His own acclaimed sequence of sonnets for the great Advent antiphons are also included.… (més)

I don't normally read a lot of poetry. I think I'm going to change that habit this year. As long as I can have access to writers like Malcolm Guite. In this wonderful book, Guite includes a wonderful 1-2 page analysis with each daily reading/poem. There are poems from old greats, such as George Herbert, and more modern ones , like Christina Rosetti, as well as some of Guite's originals. I don't think there was one entry in here that I didn't appreciate!
The commentaries Guite writes are not overly didactic or condescending in any way, so this is not a book meant solely for novices, no. His observations are like meditations, perfect for the Advent/Christmas season, all the way up to Epiphany. Nature lovers, poetry enthusiasts, and contemplatives would appreciate this book a lot. I'm definitely going to be reading more of Guite's works. And I'll be re-reading this one again next year. ( )
