metaphysical (adj) connected with the study of philosophy dealing with truth and the nature of existence.
Metaphysical study attempts to understand the nature of reality and knowledge and of human life in this world, and beyond. The study of life after death and such questions form the subjects of metaphysical studies. In literature metaphysical refers to complex arrangement of ideas and words, rather abstract and difficult to understand.
- Henry found a lot of interest in the study of metaphysical problems. He would always spend time discussing the nature of our life in this world and beyond, and the nature of knowledge.
- Because of its complex use and arrangement of words and ideas the appeal of metaphysical poetry is more to the mind, rather than to the heart, as poetry is usually expected to be.
