The Ordering of Love: The New and Collected Poems of Madeleine L'Engle - Madeleine L'Engle, Walter Wangerin Jr. 3.5 stars

Includes A Cry Like a Bell(1987), The Weather of the Heart (1978), and [b:Lines Scribbled On An Envelope|4240156|Lines Scribbled On An Envelope|Madeleine L'Engle|http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/31uwXei-nbL._SL75_.jpg|4287575] (1969), as well as selections of her previously uncollected poetry. The most complete collection and any fan of her poetry will be glad to have it.

My favorites were

From Lines Scribbled: Shout Joy!; Medusa (fantastic piece); The Winter is Cold, Is Cold.

From Weather: after Annunciation; Like Every Newborn + The Risk of Birth from Christmas 1975.

From A Cry: Isaac, Pharoh's Cross; O Sapientia; Mary Speaks - Pieta and From Ephesus.

From Uncollected (circa 1990?): Sonnet 4


In A Cry, I really liked the depth of thought and consideration - opening up the dry and distant figures of history into humans with struggles and reflections of their quest to know God, esp. her Marian pieces. Very good.
