In Poetry and Apocalypse, Franke seeks to find the premises for dialogue between cultures, especially religious uding Islamic fundamentalism-and modern Western secularism.

This involves a construction of Christian epic tradition extending backward from James Joyce to Dante's essential source texts in antiquity and the Middle Ages with The Revelation of Imagination: From the Bible and Homer through Virgil and Augustine to Dante (2015).

Poetic expression, for its part, often turns in the direction of claiming to reveal truth concerning divine things-or at least meaning of a.Poetic form is indisputably a crucial aspect of many different types of theological revelation.

Many poets, both ancient and modern, claim-and are taken-to be intimates of the gods. Poetry is thus interpreted as a channel of divine vision reaching beyond the ordinary sight of mortals and issuing in inspired speech.

In Poetry and Apocalypse, Franke seeks to find the premises for dialogue between cultures, especially religious fundamentalisms―including Islamic fundamentalism―and modern Western secularism. He argues that in order to be genuinely open, dialogue needs to accept possibilities such as religious apocalypse in ways that can be best understood through the experience of poetry. Franke reads Christian epic and prophetic tradition as a secularization of religious revelation that preserves an understanding of the essentially apocalyptic character of truth and its disclosure in history. The usually neglected negative theology that undergirds this apocalyptic tradition provides the key to a radically new view of apocalypse as at once religious and poetic.
