Looking back on its first decade of publishing poetry, Massachusetts's Paraclete Press presents 13 authors that demonstrate the versatility of Judeo-Christian writing. Among the standouts here are Phyllis Tickle, Thomas Lynch, Fr. John-Julian, William Woolfitt, Scott Cairns, Paul Mariani, and Poland's Anna Kamienska. From Germany, the Iranian born poet SAID contributes a selection of contemporary psalms, while Rainer Maria Rilke is represented by such poems as "Apollo's Ancient Torso," "Entrance," "Quiet Friend," and six of his powerful written prayers.
