In Images of Matter, a collection of essays first presented at the Eighth Citadel Conference on Literature, the contributors address the complex relationship between words and images. The book is organized into three parts that illuminate aspects of Francis Bacon's dictum in The Advancement of Learning about the creative act: words are but the images of matter, and except they have life of reason and invention, to fall in love with them is all one as to fall in love with a picture.
