“A Requiem for Love” by Calvin Miller is a dramatic work in the tradition of Milton’s Paradise Lost and J. R. R. Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings” Trilogy.
With A Requiem for Love, the first book in the “Symphony Trilogy”, Calvin Miller displays the strength of his voice and the clarity of his vision. It is a story of fallen love, of impossible dreams and ancient longings, of frustrated ambition and a love so strong that it endures forever. The first volume of his Symphony trilogy retells the Genesis story.
Miller has a poetic pen. It is on display as he plays off the images of light and darkness. It evokes a poignant picture of the love of power and the power of love.
The original drawings and distinctive page styling make the book a work of art from cover to cover. This is Miller at his best. I read the book originally when it was first released in 1989. Read and reviewed by Jimmie A. Kepler.
One thought on “Review: A Requiem for Love”
I read this in Dutch decades ago, gave it away and regret that deeply. I definitely have to read it in English now 🙂
