Literature and Occult Tradition 1930
1930. Studies in philosophical poetry. Philosophical poetry is as ancient and as legitimate as philosophy itself. In this work, Professor Saurat proposes to study modern philosophical poetry. Modern philosophical poetry is the expression, varying according to the character, intelligence and surroundings of each poet, of a body of common ideas, related to neo-platonism and various occult doctrines, but original in its essence which represents the mind of modern man: the assertion of the liberty of man and of the sanctity of material nature of which he is a part. Professor Saurat presents this original and searching work, which is a distinct contribution to criticism.
