Example text

None of this, finally, wants to go along with any reduction of art to craft. indd 27 9/24/2010 11:29:08 AM 28 Forms and Genres verse is a peculiar mode of thinking with its own rubs, botches, and history; that poets think historically through their very immersion in the historically mediated materials of verse; and that, consequently, verse technique is the way in which poets think. I Few, perhaps, would think of English verse from around 1660 onward as especially metapoetical, given over to reflection on poetry itself.

Because it is so often paratactical, rather than (as Milton’s so generally is) hypotactic, the forward movement which pushes us over line endings is often aggregative rather than logical. ” The lists themselves not only mingle imaginable objects with quite abstract phrases, so that the verse yields no pictorially constructible scene, but, in a passage like this, register itself is also subjected to a series of blurrings and minglings. The poem as a whole, in fact, concertedly assaults the very framework for discriminating high, middle, and low which the couplet had turned into as Pope’s flexibility, after his death, was made to harden into a series of molds for style.

Still in one key, the Nightingale would teize: Still in one key, not Brent would always please. Here let me bend, great Dryden, at thy shrine, Thou dearest name to all the tuneful nine. What if some dull lines in cold order creep, And with his theme the poet seems to sleep? Still when his subject rises proud to view, With equal strength the poet rises too. With strong invention, noblest vigour fraught, Thought still springs up and rises out of thought; Numbers, ennobling numbers in their course, In varied sweetness flow, in varied force; The pow’rs of Genius and of Judgment join, And the Whole Art of Poetry is Thine.
