dc.description.abstractThis study will offer a close examination of Literature and Religion, investigating the parallels in central preoccupations, areas of exploration and modes of discourse which exist between them. There will be a particular emphasis on the way in which Literature and Religion articulate their concerns, i.e., on the language in which their ideas and investigations are expressed. In this regard, we will focus on the essential narrative structures integral to literary and religious discourse. Closely linked to this, there will be an examination of the role of the Imagination as the principal source of inspiration, persuasive power and narrative force in both Literature and Religion. This examination will include an in-depth analysis of the "vocabulary" and "grammar of the Imagination 111 with close attention to metaphor, myth and symbol as the primary components of Imaginative discourse.
