Merging the heart and mind

May 21st, 2021

Susan McCaslin’s new collection of poems Heart Work (Ekstasis $24.95) continues her decades-long focus on contemplative poetry and social justice. But this new work assumes a place in the human heart where “heart and mind, feeling and thinking conjoin” according to her publisher’s blurb. McCaslin’s new work makes reference to the multi-talented German mystic and abbess of the Middle Ages, Hildegard von Bingen (1098 – 1179), an anchoress (hermit) who lived in England, Julian of Norwich (1343 – 1416), said to have published the first book written in English by a known woman author, and the English Romantic poet, John Keats (1795 – 1821). McCaslin is Faculty Emeritus of Douglas College in New Westminster where she taught English and Creative Writing for twenty-three years. 978-1-77171-402-0
