Chrysalis Readers #17: Bridges: Paths Between Worldsby Robert F. Lawson
Synopses & Reviews
Bridges connect worlds and expand boundaries, allowing connections of spirit and the mingling of cultures and people. Emanuel Swedenborg understood the profound value, the absolute necessity, of an intimate connection between the spiritual and material worlds. This interdependence connects our worldly lives with our deepest feelings and thoughts.
The seventeenth installment of the Swedenborg Foundation's annual anthology, the Chrysalis Reader, focuses on the connections that we make between this world and the next. Writers from all walks of life share their poetry, short fiction, and essays on the experiences that bring us together or set us apart, illuminating the many and varied kinds of bridges in our lives.
This issue features poetry from Thomas R Smith, Robert Bly, Linda Pastan, William Kloefkorn, and Tim Mayo, all of whom have been featured on Garrison Keillor’s National Public Radio program The Writer’s Almanac and in numerous literary journals.
