GREELY-SENSE OF LOVE
GREELY- SENSE OF LOVE-Herein Father Greeley examines the sense of love (on all levels-- sexual, social and spiritual) from a variety of perspectives. He is satirical, spiritual, whimsical, surreal, tender with a capacity for love and friendship in the most profound sense of the Christian tradition, and at times even priestly. Above all, he is an Irish wit out of the tradition of the City of Big Shoulders. Essentially a formalist in style, he most often works in the sonnet form (as did many of his priest poet forebears--e.g., John Donne, George Herbert, and Gerard Manley Hopkins), though he is sometimes given to more open forms and even the haiku on occasion.
