Visions of presence in modern American poetry by Nathan A Scott( Book )

9 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 796 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is nothing at all, according to deconstructionist doctrine, outside of language. Nowhere, it holds, is it possible to locate any kind of "presence" external to language on which spoken and written utterance might be grounded. Nevertheless, Homer deeply contemplated the ocean, and Wordsworth the farmland, and Gerard Manley Hopkins "the dearest freshness deep down things," and their poetry suggests an undeniable experience of intimacy with things outside of language - things "as they are."

No other train of philosophical thought has ever presented a more isolated picture of humanity than has existentialism. Certainly no other philosophical movement has been as controversial.

The poetics of belief : studies in Coleridge, Arnold, Pater, Santayana, Stevens, and Heidegger by Nathan A Scott( Book )

6 editions published between 1985 and 2011 in English and held by 569 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The guiding theme of this collection is the concept of the "poetic imagination." Here the emphasis is on a group of writers and thinkers that have embraced, each in his own way, such a concept only to have been misunderstood or ignored by their later readers and interpreters and thus to have been disregarded or held to be irrelevant in the present academic climate. These essays demonstrate that the community of literature is a living one, in which the present can speak to and even modify the past, as the past can speak to and modify the present and the future
