Before The Foundation Of The World
Posted by Literary Titan
Intensely personal and authentic, Susan Weiner’s poems within Before the Foundation of the World are a work of gratitude, faith and love. A labor of devotion and unwavering belief, the poetry in this collection evokes vivid imagery in beautifully illustrated pages that finely compliment the spiritual style of the poems.
The majority of the poems are divided into two categories. They are a. apocalyptic (God being revealed to talk to Man), and b. devotional (Man speaks to God). The effort that’s been put to present the grandeur of the Divine and to create hymns of gratitude fit for God is apparent.
Additionally, some of the poems in this anthology are made for those who are going through dark times and want a source of pious courage to help them through situations that feel excruciating. Poems like “Be Not Far Away” and “Armageddon” are reminders that even the fear of death is possible to overcome through faith while poems like “Joseph in Egypt” are reminders of unconditional divine love through loneliness and rejection.
Most of the poems have end rhyme schemes, with Weiner using sonnets and couplets to craft the speaker’s unconditional love and devotion to God. The poetry in this will be appreciated by any religious lovers of poetry, history and Christian symbolism, as the poems are filled with religious symbols, historical references and evangelical parables, while at the same time being accessible and easily understood.
Before the Foundation of the World is highly recommended for poetry lovers seeking a deeper spiritual connection through both spiritual and intelligent poetry.
