Christian Wiman, "Gazing Into The Abyss"

"The sudden appearance of love and the galvanizing prospect of death lead a young poet back to poetry and a hope toward God.”

I've requested permission to post Christian Wiman's essay "Gazing into the Abyss." For now, I encourage you to go to The American Scholar and have a read.

Wiman is the editor of the acclaimed literary journal "Poetry."
