Review: The Poems of St. John of the Cross trans. and ed. by John Frederick Nims

Synopsis: A collection of poems, in English and the original Spanish, written by the 15th centrury Christian mystic St. John of the Cross.

Review: I read St. John's The Dark Night of the Soul, and found it vague and mysterious, but with merit. His poems are the same - beautiful, but vague and hazy. His words meander like a winter wind. I usually enjoy poety that is clipped and brief, but his was too metaphorical for me. I think his work will appeal to some, but not me.
