Description - The Ordering Of Love by Madeleine L'Engle

In this specially packaged edition featuring an original foreword and newly commissioned reader's guide, The Ordering of Love brings together an exhaustive collection of over 200 original L'Engle's poems.

Madeleine L'Engle's writing has always translated the invisible, intricate qualities of love into the patterns and rhythms of visible life, from her fiction to spiritual memoirs. L'Engle's poetry is no less striking. "It is written out of pain, joy, and experience too great to be borne until it is ordered into words," she writes. "And then it is written to be shared." Doused in open-hearted vulnerability, The Ordering of Love reflects on themes of love, loss, faith, and beauty as she crafts her vivid and compelling insights into the language of the heart.

From the beloved author ofA Wrinkle in Timecomes the definitive edition of her inspirational and timeless poetry, featuring more than 200 original poems, a new Foreword by Sarah Arthur, and anew reader's guide by Lindsay Lackey.

Madeleine L'Engle's writing has always translated the invisible, quiet corners of our hearts into a vivid, stunning experience. Her fiction invites readers into new universes while her spiritual memoirs unveil the tenderness and resilience of the human spirit.

In her poetry, L'Engle's craft proves just as striking, as she traverses the full breadth of the soul with her words, intimately exploring the contours of hope, doubt, and love. "It is written out of pain, joy, and experience too great to be borne until it is ordered into words," she says of her poetry. "And then it is written to be shared." Open-hearted and vulnerable, The Ordering of Love is a meditation on beauty, loss, faith, and devotion.

"A prayerful and powerful portrait of a writer who served her work, and served it well. May we strive to do the same." -Sarah Arthur, from the Foreword
