Machinations of a Feminist (Ebook)

SKU: 9789769671324 Categories: ,


by Margaret D. Gill (Kawamuinyo)


These poems share the romance the author has with words and her habit of uplifting the local, the extra-rdinary. In so doing it offers a validation of the poem as personal history, and therefore history. The words themselves are offered as the objective correlative, since what stands behind them may ultimately be un-hareable -an aim to delight God and fellowship with the reader in what may well be simply groans. Nonetheless, let all that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as seek thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified…
