About this item
This book explores the much debated relation of language and bodily experience (i.e., the 'flesh'), considering in particular how poetry functions as revelatory discourse and thus relates to the formal horizon of theological inquiry. The central thematic focus is around a 'phenomenology of flesh' as that which connects us with the world, being the site of perception and feeling, joy and suffering, and of life itself in all its vulnerability. The diversity of voices and interests explored here are interdisciplinary in method and broadly ecumenical in approach, focusing attention on such matters as the revelatory nature of language in general and poetic language in particular; the function of poetry in society; the question of incarnation and its relation to language and the poetic arts; the kenosis of the Word; and human embodiment in relation to the word 'enfleshed' in poetry.
