Winner--1998 Lenore Marshall Poetry Prize Finalist--1997 National Book Critics Circle AwardIn Questions for Ecclesiastes, Mark Jarman takes on the idea of holiness in an unholy world, of spiritual realities in secular America... His poems made me think of altars, the kind we sometimes make unconsciously on a side-table or dresser where we deposit sea shells, pebbles, lost buttons, and other interesting finds, arranging them just so, as if to make an offering to an unknown god.-Charles Simic, Judge, The Academy of American Poets A devout and learned exploration of the absence and silence of God.-The Philadelphia Inquirer In this deeply impressive collection, Jarman is concerned with God, His grace, and humans' relations with Him... In 20 'Unholy Sonnets, ' he takes up matters of theology directly and so appositely for these times that some of them may become pulpit as well as anthology staples.-Ray Olson, Booklist yAn A+ level candidate for glory, so peculiar in the excellence and pleasure it offers as to baffle anyone in the business of awarding laurels.-The Hudson Review Inverting Donne's 'Holy Sonnets' in his ironic 20-poem 'Unholy Sonnets' sequence, Jarman's tone is discursive instead of devotional, comic instead of firm. The sonnets...explore faith with a sense of inevitability.

Earnest, verbally adept, but droopy poetry on matters of life and death. In many cases the thought is so convoluted and emotionally opaque as to defy even this gifted poet's best efforts to involve the reader. ( )
