Redemption in Poetry and Philosophy PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Redemption in Poetry and Philosophy free pdf A biblical understanding of redemption requires the sacrificial death of Jesus. In the post-Christian world envisioned by Jean-Jacques Rousseau and his Enlightenment contemporaries, the Christ-centric source of redemption disappears, though the human need for salvation remains. This book explores how this need for redemption is realised in the post-Christian poetics of William Wordsworth and philosophical imagination of Immanuel Kant. Simon Haines critiques the secular modes of salvation articulated by each figure to illustrate the shortcomings of modern, post-Christian imagination. The book highlights the ways in which prose allegedly serves as a redemptive agent for non-believers in the modern age, but also engenders dangerous notions of self-redemption in contemporary Christians.
