The Religion Of Beauty In Woman And Other Essays On Platonic Love In Poetry And Society

Jefferson Butler Fletcher

""The Religion of Beauty in Woman and Other Essays on Platonic Love in Poetry and Society"" is a collection of essays written by Jefferson Butler Fletcher. The book explores the concept of Platonic love and its role in poetry and society. Fletcher argues that the pursuit of beauty is a religious experience, and that women are the embodiment of this beauty. He also discusses the idea of Platonic love as a spiritual connection between individuals, rather than a physical one. The essays are written in a scholarly style, and draw on a range of sources from ancient Greek philosophy to modern literature. The book is a thought-provoking exploration of the nature of love and beauty, and its impact on our lives and society.This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the old original and may contain some imperfections such as library marks and notations.
