A Gem That Is Meant to Illuminate Gems  Dec 9, 2006
This essay collection contains appreciations written with elegance and conviction about a group of fresh, often radiantly achieved, poems. They are authored by a range of (mostly) contemporary authors sharing a common reach toward the mystical. Intended to acquaint ordinary readers with spiritually refreshing poetry, "Twenty Poems," provides both a rich account of the transporting dimension of several marvelous poems; and serves as an enactment of spiritual energy itself. Authors Valente and Reynard, a married couple, are poets themselves; and there is disarming directness in the advice they offer on how to apprehend beautiful, spiritually based poetry; and how to most productively live with it afterwards - so that it lives within you. This book, meant to illuminate gems of poetry, is a gem itself.
Must Have  Dec 13, 2005
The question of what inspires us and why is a topic of endless fascination. Virtually all of us can quotes lines from a poem that has special meaning for us. Many books which purport to be inspirational suffer from being either too personal or too general. "Twenty Poems to Nourish Your Soul" is that rare book which is both personal and inclusive. The selected poems are inspirational, and the essays are heart warming. To their credit the authors, both of whom are poets, strictly limit the amount of their own work that is presented, and focus on inspirational poems by others. Having said that, Mr. Reynard's poem alone is reason to buy this book. Altogether, an outstanding effort that belongs on everyone's bookshelf and is a superb gift for anyone you know. Very highly recommended.
