It is a wonderful spiritual exercise to consider the spectacular things in the world around us. Look at the delicate beauty of a newly opened flower, the flaming skies as the sun rises or sets, the rugged beauties of the mountain ranges, a new mother gently caressing her first born child, and other scenes too beautiful to put in words. As we reflect on the magnificent beauties of creation, the artistic skills of the Creator amaze us.
Poets have a special role in capturing religious awe in ways beyond the power of discursive language. Some essays in this book approach the subject on a theoretical level, working with theology, philosophy and literary criticism. Others provide close readings of poems in which the engagement with a variously understood idea or experience of wonder is prominent, from the English-language tradition and outside it. Poets from culturally and historically different backgrounds are thus drawn together through the focus on the meaning of wonder.
