Baker & Taylor Presents fifty poems by the French saint that celebrate her love of God
Blackwell North Amer Though the influence of St Therese of Lisieux has spread far and wide since her canonization, her gifts as a poet have remained largely unknown to English-speaking readers. Alan Bancroft's new translations will do much to rectify past neglect. Scholarly and sensitive in his interpretation, Bancroft captures the intelligence and fervour of Therese's verse. The fifty poems - like her prose - celebrate her joyous surrender to the glory of God.
