Theology of Swallows by David Manicom

In Theology of Swallows, David Manicom contrasts the fact of personal happiness with a world where pain is more often than not the common measure. In poems that are richly musical, he meditates on the paradox of being loved amidst the cruel history of nations; of birth in the fact of darkness; of family and community flourishing despite brutal social realities; of land and nature surviving dominant political and historical forces. Thus Theology of Swallows affirms beauty and compassion as the enduring spiritual elements at the centre of all our lives.
