Faces of the Infinite

Neoplatonism and Poetry at the Confluence of Africa, Asia and Europe

Edited by Stefan Sperl and Yorgos Dedes

Proceedings of the British Academy

  • Interdisciplinary approach combines comparative literature with philosophy to produce the first comparative overview of the interaction between poetry and Neoplatonism in the greater Mediterranean region
  • An extensive introduction prepares the ground for the general, non-specialist reader
  • Broad regional and cross-cultural coverage of relevance to present day concerns draws attention to the kinship between poetic traditions of different languages, cultures and religions often perceived to be at variance with each other
  • Covers poetry in seven languages cited in English translation in the published volume and the volume's accompanying website lyrics-of-ascent.net features the texts in the original languages with English translation
