Review: The Hound of Heaven by Francis Thompson

Synopsis: A 182-line poem, published in 1893, about God's Love chasing us. It is considered one of the best mystical/religous poems of the later time period.

Review: I'm not one for mystical poetry, finding it vague, flowery and verbose. This was none of those things. Simple words, strung together like beads, describe God's pursuit of us in gorgeous, haunting language. I highly recommend.
