In Search of the Absolute - Stephen McNeilly
Following the success of On The True SPhilosopher, In Search of the Absolute explores Swedenborg's profound impact on modern literature. Beginning with an essay on Coleridge, Tulk and Swedenborg, the following articles discuss Swedenborg's lasting legacy on the work of R W Emerson, Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Walt Whitman, August Strindberg and Jorge Luis Borges. One aim of the essays, writes Stephen McNeilly in the Introduction, is to 'shed greater light on the infuence of Swedenborg on writers of the nineteenth century to the present day'. 'a wonderful publication...'Professor Bernhard Lang, University of Paderhorn Contributors H J Jackson, Anders Hallengren, Richard Lines, Lars Bergquist, Emilio R Baez-RiveraSpecifications:
