This book of essays on poetic speech, viewed in a literary-critical, theological and philosophical light, explores the connections and disconnections between vulnerable human words, so often burdened with doubt and pain, and the ultimate kenosis of the divine Word on the Cross. An introductory discussion of language and prayer is followed by reflections linking poetry with religious experience and theology, especially apophatic, and questioning the ability of language to reach out beyond itself. The central section foregrounds the motif of the suffering flesh, while the final section, including essays on seventeenth-century English metaphysical poetry and several of the great poets of the twentieth century, is devoted to the sounds and rhythms which give a poem its own kind of "body".

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The volume, unified around a clearly defined topic but treating it from a great variety of perspectives, is a valuable and inspiring contribution to the study of intersections of poetry, philosophy, and religion."
(Barbara Kowalik, Studia Bobolanum 4/2015)
