A Way of Seeing : Perception, Imagination and Poetry Paperback / softback
by John Allison
Paperback / softback
This beautifully written book by Australian poet John Allison shows how poetry can reveal aspects of the world invisible to science. Allison describes the path to 'true imagination', an intensification of ordinary imagination, which can lead to real knowing.
He examines how poets such as Shakespeare, Blake, Coleridge, Keats, John Ruskin, Gerard Manley Hopkins and Rainer Maria Rilke have developed and practiced this kind of 'deep seeing'.
