​Seal Up the Thunder

Erin Noteboom's ​Seal Up the Thunder is a collection of poetry inspired from the Bible, but offering alternate perspectives to the traditional tales.

Erin Noteboom

In her second collection, Erin Noteboom draws on the Bible to create vivid and thought-provoking poetry. Fearlessly, Noteboom considers the psalms, proverbs, the traditional stories of the Bible, and other ideas of religion. Always, she writes from the unexpected point-of-view. She writes of Leah's experience, and Cain's — rather than Jacob's and Abel's. The psalms contain praise of dishwater, and Noteboom doesn't hesitate to comment on more extreme forms of religious conviction. A fascinating and intriguing book. (From Wolsak and Wynn Publishers)
