While deeply embedded in the cultural, historical, ecological, and theological zeitgeist, Angelic Scintillations continues the poet's spiritual evolution. First, the poet dialogues with her ancestor, seventeenth century Welsh mystic poet Henry Vaughan, the religious practices of his time and mine, using current events and politics to situate the reader. Second, she resacralizes cronehood and attitudes toward aging through humour and healing and using historical and autobiographical references. Third, she revisions the relationship between Mary Magdalene and Jesus, restoring their cosmic power via a feminist viewpoint. There is a cohesiveness here that melds a feminist perspecitve with questions about religion and Biblical stories--an attempt to situate all of this within a modern-day context with issues we face politically, geographically, and environmentally in today's society.
