Thomas Taylor (1758-1835) was the first English translator of the works of Plato, Aristotle, Plotinus and the later Platonists. A Casting of Light, adapted by Guy Wyndham-Jones, is a collection of Taylor's poems and meditations, inspired and deeply influenced by the ancient philosophy he so loved and strove to live by. Thematically arranged according to the parts of the day - morning, afternoon, evening and night, this beautiful collection of Taylor's verses offers much for moments of meditation, contemplation and reflection on the divine principles, union with deities, and our relationship with the natural world.

This collection also includes Taylor's long poem addressed to the Philosophers of Antiquity.
