Offers a learned and yet playful post-modern re-appropriation and
reanimation of two central Christian themes: Christ's descent into
hell and the resurrection of the dead. The move from a theological
to a theo-poetical perspective reveals the pervasive archetypal
anxieties and hopes that underlie the traditional dogmas and
enables us to recognise how central these same motifs are in Greek
mythology and in some of the most powerful twentieth-century
poetry. We may be amazed to discover how these seemingly obsolete
notions, if understood metaphorically rather than literally, can
illuminate and deepen our own experiences of despair and of living
with "ghosts" from our past that seemingly will not let us go.
