Rollover to Zoom
"The Will to Christ" contains ambition, a paean to bipolar disorder, four dramatic monologues by major players in the genesis and termination of the only messiah he's known, poetry on a sustained level that is often frightening.
While the author has two other books and over a hundred poems in print, another ninety wouldn't offer a tenth of what this great long-poem rewards in continued reading. Here is an epic, twenty-two years in the making, that summons even Milton. The latter would be clearly horrified.
