The Emergence of a Bahá’í Consciousness in World Literature: The Poetry of Roger White

In April 1993, just before the end of the Holy Year commemorating the historic occasion of the centenary of the ascension of Baha’u’llah, Roger White passed away.

His story and his poetry are briefly examined in this book.
