The Structure within each Lesson:
Poetry and other Arts "poetry is music set to words", Dennis O'Driscoll "One of [Donald Davie's favourite notions] was that there were three useful analogies for the understanding of literature in general and modern literature in particular.
Poetry was like theatre, as in Yeats; like music, as in Pasternak and Eliot; and like sculpture, as in Pound", Denis Donoghue, "Words Alone", "Poetry, unlike music, is a meta-art, and relies upon non-physical structures for the production of its effects.
In its case, the medium is syntax, grammar and logical continuity, which together form the carrier-wave of plain sense within which its deeper meanings are broadcast. In contrast to many of his contemporaries who make similar claims, however, Hegel never wavers in insisting that poetry is the crisis of art as much as it is its triumph.
Poetry's uniqueness stems from the fact that the subject and the object of poetry, the medium and the message, are one and the same. Unlike painting or sculpture, poetry can deal with any and every topic in any and every fashion because in the final analysis what poetry really expresses is the mind's apprehension of itself to itself in itself", "Derrida, Hegel, and the Language of Finitude", Jan Mieszkowski, Postmodern Culture, May Poetry and Ritual "Poetry speaks most effectively and inclusively whether in free or formal verse when it recognizes its connection - without apology - to its musical and ritualistic origins", Dana Gioia, "The Dark Horse",p.
That is what it comes from and to that it must always return for nourishment", T. I am convinced that most readers, when they think they are admiring poetry, are deceived by inability to analyse their sensations, and that they are really admiring, not the poetry of the passage before them, but something else in it, which they like better than poetry", A.
Housman, "The Name and Nature of Poetry" lecture Its cultured members expect to find in poetry, if anything, repose from material and nervous anxiety; an apt or chiselled phrase strokes the appetites and tickles the imagination.
The more general public merely enjoys its platitudes and truisms jerked on to the understanding in line and rhyme; truth put into metre sounds overwhelmingly true", Harold Monro, "The Future of Poetry", Poetry Review, January "artworks not only mime nature; they also mime the accepted modes of miming", Stephen H.
Another way of putting this is to say that art expresses something while at the same time hiding it", Adorno,"" "What the artist tries to do either consciously or unconsciously is to not only capture the essence of something but also to amplify it in order to more powerfully activate the same neural mechanisms that would be activated by the original object", Ramachandran, "It is a mistake to suppose, with some philosophers of aesthetics, that art and poetry aim to deal with the general and the abstract.
This misconception has been foisted upon us by mediaeval logic.
Art and poetry deal with the concrete of nature, not with separate 'particulars,' for such rows do not exist. Walter Raleigh It is, indeed, the noblest and most extensive of the mimetic arts; having all creation for its object, and ranging the entire circuit of universal being", Richard Hurd, "Discourse on Poetical Imitation", "Poetry exists partly to undermine the certainties of an accepted intellectual system, by opening a fissure of awareness at which the reality of the unconquered world may enter", "Slip-shod Sibyls", Germaine Greer, Viking,p.
More and more mankind will discover that we have to turn to poetry to interpret life for us, to console us, to sustain us", Matthew Arnold, "The Study of Poetry".
The technique of art is to make objects 'unfamiliar', to make forms difficult, to increase the difficulty and length of perception, because the process of perception is an aesthetic end in itself and must be prolonged. Art is a way of experiencing the artfulness of an object; the object is not important" - Shklovsky, "Art as Technique", in Russian Formalist Criticism: It should be precise about the thing and reticent about the feeling, for as soon as the mind responds and connects with the thing the feeling shows in the words" - Wei T'ai, 11th century.
A poem is absolute", EM Forster, "Anonymity: I do not know if such increased awareness makes us more moral or more efficient. I think it makes us more human, and I am quite certain it makes us more difficult to deceive", Auden, in "The English Auden: It should matter first to the writer and then to the reader", Michael Rosen poetry is the "fusion of three arts: Collins "A poem needs to find a way into itself", G.Each entry, or chapter, focuses on one of Shakespeare's plays or key works of poetry.
