Gravity and Grace was the first ever publication by the remarkable thinker and activist, Simone Weil. In it Gustave Thibon, the farmer to whom she had entrusted her notebooks before her untimely death, compiled in one remarkable volume a compendium of her writings that have become a source of spiritual guidance and wisdom for countless individuals. On the fiftieth anniversary of the first English edition - by Routledge & Kegan Paul in 1952 - this Routledge Classics edition offers English readers the complete text of this landmark work for the first time ever, by incorporating a specially commissioned translation of the controversial chapter on Israel. Also previously untranslated is Gustave Thibon's postscript of 1990, which reminds us how privileged we are to be able to read a work which offers each reader such 'light for the spirit and nourishment for the soul'. This is a book that no one with a serious interest in the spiritual life can afford to be without.

In this thoughtful and carefully argued book, John Desmond uncovers Christian and transcendent elements in Seamus Heaney's poetry by reading it through the intellectual perspectives of the well-known poet Czeslaw Milosz and the French philosopher Simone Weil. Weil was a powerful influence on Milosz's thought and writing; Milosz, in turn, exercised considerable influence on Heaney's thought and poetry. Desmond utilizes these connections in order to show the way Weil's thought about Christianity and transcendence illuminates Heaney's complex relationship with Christianity. Desmond's sensitive readings of Heaney's poems through this new lens reveal previously unexplored depths in the work of the Nobel Prize-winning poet.

Grit, Gravity & Grace: New Poems About Medicine and Healthcare is a modest collection of forty-one poems by thirty-eight poets that originated from a poetry competition sponsored by the Section on Medicine and the Arts at The College of Physicians of Philadelphia in the winter of 2014 - 2015. The primary goal of the competition was to bring together poets and those who love poetry from all walks of life in a shared poetic dialogue about medicine, health and healthcare. The secondary goal was to host an evening poetry event at The College in celebration of the 25th anniversary of National Poetry Month in April 2015. Poems in this collection are by students, health care practitioners, educators, patients, and their families. They capture unique experiences and perspectives; they speak of vulnerability and ambivalence, insight and epiphany. Some bear witness to caregivers' compassion, others to detachment. Some observe illness and the human condition with humor, others with profound sadness.The poems are grouped by season as many capture images relevant to a particular time of the year or focus on a disease that peaks during certain months. "Spring" allows us to move from the joy of new birth to the angst of adolescence, from the nourishing nature of intravenous therapy to the fresh bloom of life following remission from cancer. "Summer" reminds us of the devastating polio epidemics of years gone by but also invokes optimism, vacations, the promise of new discoveries and experiences. "Autumn" presents a time for reflection on what it means to be a student, to suffer from depression, to struggle as the caregiver of an aging parent, or acknowledge the growing frailty of the body. "Winter" devolves into dire diagnoses, threats to one's sense of self, and the fears and realities of death, dying and loss; yet even here, the warmth, beauty and resilience of human nature prevail.

In his thinking and writing on Canadian art, curator and artist Gil McElroy has repeatedly encountered two elements: gravity and grace. Employing these two notions in a binary fashion – as ends of the aesthetic field – McElroy writes about art in terms that engage everything that surrounds us, exploring the words of such renowned Canadian artists as bpNichol, Dan Steeves, Susan Wood, Peter Dykhuis, Carl Zimmerman, Robin Peck, Gerald Ferguson, Dennis Gill and Christopher Pratt.
