The imagery continued to impress him as his scholarship continued. Now, after many years of research and rewarding study, a thorough treatment of Augustines image clusters is revealed in this volume, Soundings in St. Augustines Imagination. That St. Augustines writings are empowered by use of poetic imagery is of interest to readers of philosophy and theology, as well as language. In this work, Augustines imagery is used as a basis to shed light on some of his thought which had previously puzzled the scholarly world. Soundings in St. Augustines Imagination is an imperative addition to any philosophical library and a rich reward for all intrigued by his dramatic use of language and metaphor.
