This volume is a study in Classical literature. The first section deals with the birth of language and literature from consciousness, and the formation of literary history. It explores Husserl's mapping of the origins of language, and subsequent language theories in Merleau-Ponty, Sartre, and Heidegger. The second section traces privileged Homeric shelters such as the bowers off the battle-line in the "Iliad" and hidden islands like Ogygia in the "Odyssey". It tracks that same language-sheltering into several Biblical wombs - Sarai's, Mary's or Jonah's whales, and turns from these to language shelters constructed by Sappho for her passion, Saint Paul for inner salvation, and by the creator of the "Bhagavad Gita".
