The Influence of Mysticism on 20th Century British and American Literature

The Influence of Mysticism on 20th Century British and American Literature

David Garrett Izzo


This quantity discusses the relationships among the philosophy of Mysticism, which strains its lineage again into prehistory, with that of the area of extra conventional philosophy and literature. the writer argues for the centrality of mysticism's position within the philosophical and inventive improvement of western tradition. The connections among those worlds are underscored because the writer examines the works of Heraclitus, Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, Iris Murdoch, Yeats, AE (George Russell), T.S. Eliot, Joyce, Woolf, Auden, Huxley, Lessing, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and Tony Kushner, between others.
