E. Ethelbert Miller
“Ethelbert’s poetry enters us and sings. Like the biblical prophets, he inspires and challenges us, and gives voice to our deepest longing: to live with greater intensity and passion, and bring significance to our existence. He is one of the great voices of our day.”—Susannah Heschel, Eli Black Professor of Jewish Studies, Dartmouth College
