Item description for The Poet's Gift by Donald Capps...
Overview Donald Capps draws upon the poetry of William Stafford and Denise Levertov to show how poetry can benefit the field of pastoral care. He argues the poetry focuses on the immediate experience and attends to lift itself, whereas theology and ethics focus more on abstract discourse, seeking to achieve a more panoramic view of life.
