Poetry Through an Existential Lens: Truth, Language, and Being Towards Possibility
Poetry Through the Existential Lens explores the relationship between existential philosophy and contemporary poetry, drawing on the ways both fields interact. The author proposes that existentialism can be used as a hermeneutic lens to study poetry through, and that such an approach has the power to reveal important ontological issues and create a space for self and Other mediation. Through this process, poetry encourages authenticity within the reader, who then becomes a co-creator of the poem.
