    1 thought on “Burning Wyclif

    1. I received this book through First Reads. The Robert A. Fink Introduction to this award-winning volume of poetry begins with a startling declaration: "Most of us recognize the name John Wyclif and associate it with the translation of the Latin Vulgate Bible into English." I call the sentence startling because, well, call me an ignorant secularist, but up until now (and now for me is more or less 50 years) I have never heard of John Wyclif . . . not as a translator, a philosopher, a theologian, [...]

    2. We really didn’t study John Wyclif much in undergraduate philosophy class. You’ll need to put on your thinking cap to read this 1. I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review. Only an honest one. A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written diptychs & triptychs poems (book). I’m not familiar with these type [...]

    3. I received this book for free through a Giveaways. I was pretty unprepared for the content of this work of poetry and was pretty taken with it once I got started. I reread a few things and mulled over phrases that really stuck to me. Glad to have read this.

    4. I was never one for poetry, but I really enjoyed this book. My daughter will be reading it now that I'm finished.

    5. Who knew that a modest book of poems about some dead guy from the middle ages could make you feel like the 14th century wasn't that long ago after all?

    6. This was one of the 2007 RUSA Notable Books winners. For the complete list, go to ala/ala/mgrps/divs/rus
