Maybe a good place to start when answering this question is to locate the specific influences that function as presuppositions in the poem. The first and most obvious is Plato's account of the immortal soul as preexisting the body. Others include the biblical text and the theology of St. Augustine. This poem unfolds almost parallel to history of Western thought--especially in terms of the classics.
