Summary Read First Chapter image missing

This book combines interdisciplinary and comparatist approaches (anthropology, philosophy, psychology, and language) in the investigation of the mythic mode of thought and language in the post-Symbolist poets Arthur Rimbaud, Georg Trakl, Hart Crane, and Charles Olson. Part One covers the philosophical tradition from Gottfried Herder to Ernst Cassirer. Part Two includes close analytical readings of individual poems by these authors as they enact the mythic mode. The conclusion relates the mythic mode to feminist studies of thought and language.

"This is unquestionably a work written with zest, passion, and intellectual energy. I am convinced that many researchers in areas such as science and literature, or literature and religion, or in paradigm research will want to acquire and read this book." -- Virgil Nemoianu, Catholic University of America

"This work has a wide-ranging scholarship that reflects a good understanding of those writers it undertakes to elucidate. Even more, the author's general assessment of each writer is strong indeed; her arguments are convincing and interesting to read, and this is the true virtue of the work. Given the breadth of material involved, it is no mean feat to have accomplished all this." -- James S. Hans, Wake Forest University
