Homage to Søren Kierkegaard: Poems in Memory of Reverend Ronald Marshall: PRE-ORDER
Homage to Søren Kierkegaard is a new anthology composed of original poems from fifty writers of faith. The anthology was developed in honor of Rev. Ronald F. Marshall (1948-2021). Known for his labors on behalf of Seattle’s hungry and homeless, Marshall was also a prolific reader and brilliant teacher whose devotion to Kierkegaard produced two major books on his muse: Kierkegaard for the Church and Kierkegaard in the Pulpit: Sermons Inspired by His Writings.
Kierkegaard served as muse for the poems here gathered. When Dappled Things launched a major contest, poets were presented with Kierkegaardian paradoxes, and in response to these theological provocations an abundance of verses appeared from around the country. Judges Dana Gioia and Mary Grace Mangano selected these works from over two hundred submissions. In collaboration with the MFA in Creative Writing at the University of Saint Thomas in Houston, Wiseblood Books is pleased to present this anthology, which includes a preface by Dana Gioia and an introduction from Rev. Marshall’s widow, Jane Harty.
