Book summary: Heaven


Winner of the 1999 Bakeless Literary Publication Prize for Poetry: A cycle of poems based on the Christian liturgical calendar and the books of the Bible. In elegant, formal poetry ranging in tone from tart, irreverent, and rebellious to questioning, hopeful, and blissful, Jill Alexander Essbaum retells the Biblical story, and explores the meaning of love as seen through the eyes of an archetypal Eve. Her poems speak of unsure faith, the theology of doubt, and the uncertainty of anything divine, placed against a background of skeptical yet fervent hope that God is, despite such disbelief.
