Editorial Reviews

Review

"This extraordinary study stands virtually alone in focusing on the mysterious area in poetry between word and meaning. Only the most sensitive and learned guides coule lead us through this terra incognita. Barfield is such a guide The book has already become a classic."--G. B. Tennyson
