Criticism of Didactic Poetry

Read online Criticism of Didactic Poetry streaming Criticism of Didactic Poetry Shelley thought all didactic poetry an abhorrence and most of the Romantics agreed with this judgment Critics in this century have been less dismissive of the genre but seem puzzled by it There has been a tendency to treat a didactic poem as though it were a kind of lyric in which the focus of interest lies in the emotions and feelings of the writer But didactic poetry has a purpose history and character of its own This original and important book asks the question What can the practising critic usefully say about a didactic poem This is not primarily a book about theory but a guide to practical criticism combined with a fresh reading of the chosen texts Through a close analysis of three of the major didactic poems in the classical canon the De rerum natura of Lucretius the Georgics of Virgil and the Ars amatoria of Ovid Dalzell s aim is to consider these poems as a genre and to ascertain what tools are available to the critic for their understanding He raises questions about the limits of genre criticism the relationship of poetry and knowledge reader response and historical reception Can there be a poetry of statement Is all genuine poetry necessarily fictive in some sense To what extent is a serious didactic intent compatible with poetry The Criticism of Didactic Poetry is primarily of interest to classicists It will also be of great value to scholars of other literatures who are interested in the history of the genre or in the theoretical debate about whether poetry can encompass knowledge This book is a significant original contribution to the field with the potential to influence future scholarly thinking on didactic poetry
