AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Poetry does not simply ask ‘What?’ or ‘Why?’ It is deeply concerned with the question, ‘How?’, even if the question is not presented as a theme. God does not usually appear under the questions ‘What?’ and ‘Why?’ in poetry, and when he does it is usually in terms of the ‘supernatural attitude’. Yet God can appear in poems by way of a relation. It is not always the case that divine manifestation is overwhelming; sometimes it is as something that can easily be overlooked or bypassed.'  (Publication abstract)
