A geometry of faith …

 Through a Verse Darkly: On Kevin Hart’s “Poetry and Revelation” - Los Angeles Review of Books. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Poetry and Revelation is not less than a series of sensitive readings and bold reinterpretations of the work of a range of religious poets, but it is much more than that. This is a book with a vision of a peaceful, nay mutually enhancing ménage à trois. In Hart’s own terms, the volume takes the “conceptual shape” of a triangle with its three apexes of philosophy, revelation, and poetry undergoing equilateral, isosceles, and scalene transformations in each chapter
