"Holocaust Image", epic poem by Baylor scholar James Langley


The First Baptist Church of the City of Washington DC has handed out printed copies of a long poem, “Holocaust Image”, by James A. Langley.

The poem fills 8 full-sized pages and has sixteen stanzas, unrhymed.

The story of a boy taken by the Nazis during the Holocaust reminds me of Ellie Wiesel’s “Night”.


 
The poet delivered the featured address at the Corner Stone Laying Ceremony for the Armstrong Browning Library at Baylor University in Waco, TX.  The Baylor Browning Collection was compiled by Dr. A. Joseph Armstrong, head of the Baylor English Department.
