CONTRA O GOLPE CIVIL EM CURSO E A FAVOR DA DEMOCRACIA

sexta-feira, 30 de maio de 2014

Yet increasingly throughout the nineteenth century, whatever the actual achievements of the poets, the name "Poetry" too often became a vague short-hand term for a lost lyrical directness of first-person feeling, an ideal of Romantic transcendentalism that was seemingly no more, alongside other religious and spritual losses.

In its place appeared an onstensibly smaller, more domesticated burgeois world. The close relation between the world of the realistic novel and the circunstances of its middle-class readers, the authorial reassurance offered by the detail sense of an automatically placeable context, seemed to some reviewrs, even in the 1860s, to be a poor replacement for the leap of connective imagination necessary to the reading of the poetry.

(Philip Davis, The Victorians, p.225)
