Romantic Poems, Poets, and Narrators

Voorkant
Kent State University Press, 2000 - 203 pagina's
Romantic Poems, Poets, and Narrators will be valuable to specialists not only in romantic period studies but in literary theory and poetics as well. Students of Blake, Coleridge, Wordsworth, and Keats will appreciate these refreshingly subtle, tactful, and convincing new readings of the major romantic poems. The book is a scholarly and engaging guide to the various and complex discourses--formalist, psychoanalytic, deconstructive, new historicist--that have provided the terms in which these poems have been and currently are received.

Pagina 41 - A Spirit had followed them; one of the invisible inhabitants of this planet, neither departed souls nor angels; concerning whom the learned Jew Josephus, and the Platonic Constantinopolitan, Michael Psellus, may be consulted.

Pagina 62 - ... reveals itself in the balance or reconciliation of opposite or discordant qualities: of sameness, with difference; of the general, with the concrete; the idea, with the image; the individual, with the representative; the sense of novelty and freshness, with old and familiar objects; a more than usual state of emotion, with more than usual order...

Pagina 60 - Tis sweeter far to me, To walk together to the kirk With a goodly company! — To walk together to the kirk, And all together pray, While each to his great Father bends, Old men, and babes, and loving friends And youths and maidens gay!
Pagina 22 - Language is not a neutral medium that passes freely and easily into the private property of the speaker's intentions, it is populated - overpopulated - with the intentions of others. Expropriating it, forcing it to submit to one's own intentions and accents, is a difficult and complicated process.
Pagina 28 - O why was I born with a different face ? Why was I not born like the rest of my race...
Pagina 40 - The bodies of the ship's crew are inspired, and the ship moves on; But not by the souls of the men nor by demons of earth or middle air, but by a blessed troop of angelic spirits, tent down by the invocation of the guardian saint.
