Simon Haines is Professor and Chair of English, The Chinese University of Hong Kong.
"Redemption in Poetry and Philosophy is highly original, lucid, tremendously thoughtful. Haines' knowledge of Western literature and philosophy is masterful. This work brings from the conceptual world of philosophy to the metaphorical world of poetry something I am confident that Romantic scholars will welcome and debate for years to come." -- Richard Lansdown, Associate Professor of English, James Cook University
