This volume is selected and introduced by poet Kate Farrell, whose books include Art & Wonder: An Illustrated Anthology of Visionary Poetry, and Time's River: The Voyage of Life in Art and Poetry.
In what way is imagination true? And what does it do for us? Throughout this collection is the sense that true imagination, unlike mere fantasy, is a more- than-rational way of knowing. It is a natural bridge between matter and spirit, and a transformative state and stage of consciousness open to us all.
In the volume’s introductory essay, poet Kate Farrell reflects on the mystery of imagination and looks at reading as a life-changing imaginative activity. Ms. Farrell’s introduction was selected to be included in The Best American Spiritual Writing 2007, published by Houghton Mifflin.
