We usually think of imagination as a fanciful, whimsical faculty that has little to do with reality and truth. This beautifully written book by the Australian poet John Allison shows how ordinary imagination can be intensified to become an organ of cognition—a path of development to real knowing.
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'.
