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.

Seite 17 - To speak therefore of medicine, and to resume that we have said, ascending a little higher ; the ancient opinion that man was microcosmus, an abstract or model of the world, hath been fantastically strained by Paracelsus and the alchemists, as if there were to be found in man's body certain correspondences and parallels, which should have respect to all varieties of things, as stars, planets, minerals, which are extant in the great world.
