3. ‘Poetry: Word Made Flesh, Flesh Made Word

The third Power of the Word conference was hosted by the Institute of English and American Studies of the University of Gdańsk in September 2013. It drew widely from scholars from the USA, UK and other European countries, with a large group of Polish scholars in attendance. It brought a rich sampling of Polish poetry alongside that of English-language authors into the examination of the relationship between the incarnation and the revelatory power of poetic language. This led to the third volume in the series entitled  Poetic Revelations. Word Made Flesh Made Word. The Power of the Word III edited by Mark S. Burrows, Jean Ward, and Małgorzata Grzegorzewska (Routledge, 2017). 

Two other volumes emerged from this conference exploring, among other themes, the contribution of Polish poets and poetry from Baroque to modern era.
