Institute of English Studies, University of London, UK.
2. Poetry and Prayer: Continuities and Discontinuities.
Following the success of the first assembly, a second conference took place a year later at Senate House, University of London, UK, in conjunction with the School of Advanced Studies, University of London. The previously established academic network was enriched by a growing number of participants from various European countries. The focus of the interdisciplinary conversations was this time on the connection between poetic inspiration and prayer. It gave rise to the volume Poetry and Prayer: The Power of the Word II edited by Francesca Bugliani Knox and John Took (Routledge 2016), thus establishing what is now known as the "Power of the Word Series".
