Poetry. Jewish Studies. To find and underline alms in psalms: To write one's own psalms. Browne's psalter is grounded in the noble and prestigious tradition of song as a privileged place for personality's input and growth within and through religion. What a freedom! What a multiplicity of moves is stressed, within such a tradition, one to which LOST PARKOUR PS(ALMS) takes us! With what audacity! With what self-confidence!
