Abstract

This essay examines the sensory references in three poems by Edward Taylor, based on a relativistic approach to the sensorium, which may vary in different cultures and at different eras. The essay argues that abstract-to-abstract metaphorical mappings, as are found more often in poetry than in other genres, should better inform cognitive linguistic theorizing about metaphor.
