“In all that David Craig writes, we hear the voice of one crying in a perplexing wilderness, bidding us to prepare. These poems attain to both witness and prophecy, offering calm consolation that every darkness will yield to light.”

—Scott Cairns, author of PHILOKALIA: NEW & SELECTED POEMS

 

“I have followed David Craig’s poetry for some time now, relishing not only its quality but also its originality—how few in our time eschew the triviality and babble of so-called postmodernism, preferring the path of spiritual growth? What a pleasure to chart that progress, aesthetic and spiritual (for Craig the two are rightly inseparable), as we here can do by moving from the jewel-like earlier poetry to a tour de force like ANNA-MARIA TAIGI.”

—Sydney Lea, author of SIX SUNDAYS TOWARD A SEVENTH, founder of NEW ENGLAND REVIEW

 

On Preparation for Death poems:

“Absolutely magnificent! Et in Arcadia ego never more clear. And probably too hard a lesson for contemporaries, even believers. It will be a rare Padre who reads one to his flock this century...in this country, anyway. I sure hope you get this out as a little book, a vade mecum in pocketsize, to be referred to frequently. Bravo!”

—Howard McCord, author of THE COMPLETE POEMS
