Lucifer, a Hagiography, by Philip Memmer

Lucifer, a Hagiography: Poems Lucifer, a Hagiography: Poems by Philip Memmer

My review

rating: 5 of 5 stars
My favorite poetry is magical. It inspires, provokes, tantalizes, upsets, worries and inspires. This is such a book. It deeply explores the human condition in amazing, painful and enlightening ways. I loved it!

Lucifer, the oldest son of God, grows up in Heaven and then falls to earth where he lives among people. He (And the author, Philip Memmer)is very sensitive to the human condition. The poems are poignant and heart wrenching. They are also so thought provoking that they inspired me to dash out and do research on Lucifer and the Bible. Very interesting. I read every poem several times and found it almost like a novel. I didn't want to put it down until I'd completed it.
