This book is the result of the author's search for Truth and the meaning of Life. After the loss of her family in the Holocaust of World War II, and later divorce, she found no comfort or comforter for her grief. She then began to pour out her pain through poetry. Although she began writing at age twelve, when she became fluent in English, this book is a compilation of only the past forty years of her writings. Her soul-search began in 1961, at which time she produced several sonnets. One sonnet in particular, Celestial Lapidary, revealed to her a startling message from God: that our suffering serves an ennobling purpose. This breakthrough enabled her to persevere. In 1965 she met her Jewish Messiah, Jesus, through the reading of The New Testament given her by a kind friend. Thereafter, the poems reflect her deep devotion to The God of All Comfort who gave her the Love and Hope to live an overcoming and victorious life. In 1996 she began to share publicly her Scriptural teachings, as well as the poems which they had inspired. She continues to do so to the present.

The words of Jesus Christ are restored to their original poetic form in this extraordinary volume. Jesus Christ, whose teachings have been on the lips of millions for two millennia, is revealed here as one of the greatest poets of all time. What happened to deafen us to the poetic nature of his words? In migrating from Aramaic speech into written Greek translation, and later into English translation, the lyrics got locked up as prose. In The Poems of Jesus Christ Willis Barnstone unveils the essential poetry of the Gospels by taking the direct speech of Jesus from Mark, Matthew, Luke, and John, and lineating and titling Jesus’s words as individual poems. Jesus’s poems are wisdom lyrics and narrative parables, rich with garden, animal, and nature imagery. Austere and poignant, they carry the totality of the Gospels’ message through the intensity of a single voice––the Gospel of Jesus.

On the morning of December 14, 2012, I tried to go to sleep. Just before I could slip into a deep sleep, I started to get the beginnings of a poem repeating inside my head. It started out as two rhyming sentences that kept repeating over and over in my head as I was trying to go to sleep. I eventually got up and wrote the whole poem. Later that week, as I was thinking about that poem and another poem came into my head. My girlfriend eventually joined in on the fun of finding different things to write poems on. She would say to me, “Why don’t you write a poem about this, or that?” So, when she mentioned it, I started to write about it. When I finished, I decided to compile all of the poems into a book, and share them with the rest of the world.

John Donne (1572-1631) is firmly fixed in the canon of English literature. "No man is an island" and "For whom the bell tolls" are just two of his phrases known by virtually everyone. The Poems of John Donne is a two volume edition of Donne’s poems based on a comprehensive re-evaluation of his work from composition to circulation and reception. Donne’s output is tremendously varied in style and form and demonstrates his ability to change his writing according to context and occasion. This edition presents the text of all his known poems, from the epigrams, songs and satires written for fellow young men about town, to the more mature verse-epistles and memorial elegies written for his patrons. Volume One contains the Epigrams, Verse Letters to Friends, Love Lyrics, Love Elegies and Satires.
