“Hurt Into Poetry: On Poetry and Greece”By Stephanos Papadopoulos
"The world doesn’t matter to us the way it used to. The intense meaningful lives of Homer’s Greeks, and the grand hierarchy of meaning that structured Dante’s medieval Christian world, both stand in stark contrast to our secular age. The world used to be, in its various forms, a world of sacred, shining things. The shining things now seem far away. This book is intended to bring them close once more."
– Sean Dorrance Kelley and Hubert Dreyfus, All Things Shining: Reading the Western Classics to Find Meaning in a Secular Age
