As always Rowan Williams is the perfect poet. He is incisive in language, thoughtful in subject matter and really does care for his readers. He is one of the best of the current wordsmiths and one of the few who can make spiritual/religious subjects relevant and personal. I just wish that he would write much more poetry. One of only half a dozen current poets who has something fresh to say on traditional themes.
A warning! This lovely collection is in fact a reprint of the 2002 edition, first published by Perpetua Press - as can be seen by 'Looking Inside'. Fortunately, recognising the identical cover artwork, I did so, otherwise I'd have bought it again and been sadly disappointed. There is no new work here - I am so looking forward to a fresh collection of more recent work, but this is not it!
