The Queen of Seven Swords is a rare book of poems by G. K. Chesterton, focused on Mary, the mother of Jesus. It is a volume of poems that Chesterton published in 1926, the title being a reference to the second chapter of Luke’s Gospel. When Mary and Joseph presented the baby Jesus at the Temple, Simeon rejoiced that his eyes had seen God’s salvation. Chesterton refers to a “seven-fold splendour” surrounding Mary, corresponding to the seven wounds of Christ, and there are seven poems in this collection corresponding to the seven champions of Christendom.
