Though designed primarily to complement the published volume, the Online Anthology Lyrics of Ascent is intended to go beyond the scope of the book by including a selection of languages and poems of relevance to our subject which the book does not cover. This also includes poetic writings inspired by Platonism unmediated by Neoplatonic thought, notably those composed in Europe after the Renaissance, when Plato’s original writings were rediscovered. A major example is the English poetic tradition which has for long engaged with both Platonism and Neoplatonism. A small number of English poems from different periods are therefore included and more may follow. Poems in other European and Afro-Asian languages will be added in due course.
