Between Philosophy and Poetry examines the complex and controversial relation that has informed literary theory since ancient times: the difference between philosophy and poetry. The book explores three specific areas: the practice of writing with respect to orality; the interpretive modes of poetic and philosophical discourse as self-narration and historical understanding; how rhythm marks the differential spaces in poetry and philosophy.

The uneasy relationship between poetry and philosophy in the global age. The relationship between poetry and philosophy can never be that of a child to a father. It can also not be compared to a man-woman relationship.

The times have become too uneasy for that, and one does not need to mention divorce rates or those who never get married. Poetry is an art form and as such uses various techniques in order to communicate its meaning.

The mystery of poetry is all down to its interpretation - hence, the need to theorize. Poetry, literature that evokes a concentrated imaginative awareness of experience or an emotional response through language chosen and arranged for its meaning, sound, and rhythm.

Philosophical ethics is the critical examination of these and other concepts central to how we evaluate our own and each others’ behavior and choices.
