Fancy is not mere decoration added on to plain speech. Enter your email address to subscribe to this site and receive notifications of new posts by email. I agree, Bryan – Hulme had a talent for rhetorical overstatement, and as I’ve argued in a short book on Hulme, I think his poetry manages that undersell very effectively (though I think he’s also more Romantic than he lets on)…, ThNks for sharing. The instincts that find their right and proper outlet in religion must come out in some other way. You know what I call architect’s curves—flat pieces of wood with all different kinds of curvature. A new medium had been given them to play with—namely, blank verse. Just as physically you are not born that abstract entity, man, but the child of particular parents, so you are in matters of literary judgment. Some poets prefer nature, some favor escapism and others believe in supernatural elements. What was the positive principle behind all the other principles of ’89? It is just this: A mechanical complexity is the sum of its parts. The main difference between neoclassicism and romanticism … I have got to find a metaphysic between these two which will enable me to hold consistently that a neo-classic verse of the type I have indicated involves no contradiction in terms. Shakespeare is the classic of motion. In the coming classical reaction that will feel just wrong. Now this is certainly wrong, there is nothing particularly desirable about freshness per se. The romantic, because he thinks man infinite, must always be talking about the infinite; and as there is always the bitter contrast between what you think you ought to be able to do and what man actually can, it always tends, in its later stages at any rate, to be gloomy. The view which regards man as a well, a reservoir full of possibilities, I call the romantic; the one which regards him as a very finite and fixed creature, I call the classical. The line should read: ‘End your groan and come away.’. He read French poetry and philosophy and was particularly influenced by the philosopher Henri Bergson. The critic, while he has to admit that changes from one to the other occur, persists in regarding them as mere variations to a certain fixed normal, just as a pendulum might swing. They are so-called because they had great respect for classical writers and imitated much from them. Compared to English Romanticism, German Romanticism developed relatively late, and, in the early years, coincided with Weimar Classicism (1772–1805).

Now the state of tension or concentration of mind, if he is doing anything really good in this struggle against the ingrained habit of the technique, may be represented by a man employing all his fingers to bend the steel out of its own curve and into the exact curve which you want. The dry hardness which you get in the classics is absolutely repugnant to them. It is often obscure, often half-told; for he who wrote it, in his clear seeing of the things beneath, may have been impatient of detailed interpretations; for if we choose to dwell upon it and trace it, it will lead us always securely back to that metropolis of the soul’s dominion from which we may follow out all the ways and tracks to its farthest coasts. . So banal have the terms Imagination and Fancy become that we imagine they must have always been in the language. I say merely that now is the time for such a revival. I must now shirk the difficulty of saying exactly what I mean by romantic and classical in verse. The leg of a chair by itself is still a leg. Romanticism, attitude that characterized works of literature, painting, music, architecture, criticism, and historiography in the West from the late 18th to the mid-19th century. In fact, vital and mechanical is to them exactly the same antithesis as between good and bad. When it does come we may not even recognise it as classical. The intellect always analyses—when there is a synthesis it is baffled. You are always faithful to the conception of a limit. When the analogy has not enough connection with the thing described to be quite parallel with it, where it overlays the thing it described and there is a certain excess, there you have the play of fancy—that I grant is inferior to imagination. Continue to explore Hulme’s work with his war poem composed in the trenches, his lecture on modern poetry, and our pick of Hulme’s best poems. After university, he traveled to Canada, where he worked as a laborer; and Brussels, where he taught English. I can now get at that positive fundamental quality of verse which constitutes excellence, which has nothing to do with infinity, with mystery or with emotions. It seems to me that involved in this is a bad metaphysical aesthetic. And in this I imply the superiority of fancy—not superior generally or absolutely, for that would be obvious nonsense, but superior in the sense that we use the word good in empirical ethics—good for something, superior for something. So that if good classical verse were to be written tomorrow very few people would be able to stand it. The classical poet never forgets this finiteness, this limit of man. You can read ‘Romanticism and Classicism’ here; in this post we’re going to attempt to summarise and analyse the main points of Hulme’s argument. Romantic writes believed that nature is an ever changing living organism, whose laws we will never fully understand. I know quite well that when people think of classical and romantic in verse, the contrast at once comes into their mind between, say, Racine and Shakespeare. Hulme’s role in modernism, then, was as a shaker-upper, a rabble-rouser, a populariser of ideas. Understood broadly as a break from the guiding principles of the Enlightenment – which established reason as the foundation of all knowledge – the Romantic Movement emphasised the importance of emotional sensitivity and individual … Manzoni’s Lettera sul romanticismo (Letter on Romanticism, 1823) defends romanticism as opposed to the conventions of classicism. Verse is a pedestrian taking you over the ground, prose—a train which delivers you at a destination. Romanticism and Classicism Romanticism and Classicism are two different styles of art of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, they are both famous for varied and contradictory definitions.But however, they are also two styles that are … Neoclassical poetry is a reaction to the Renaissance style of poetry. I mean Maurras, Lasserre and all the group connected with L’Action Française. If you say an extravagant thing which does exceed the limits inside which you know man to be fastened, yet there is always conveyed in some way at the end an impression of yourself standing outside it, and not quite believing it, or consciously putting it forward as a flourish. Hulme argues that the problem with romanticism is that poets on the ‘romantic’ side (and here he doesn’t refer narrowly to Romanticism with a capital R – he means not only Wordsworth, Shelley, Coleridge, and some of Keats, but also a later poet like Swinburne) always want to bring in talk of ‘the infinite’: they want to reflect this ‘infinite reservoir of possibilities’ by implying that, in terms of humanity’s achievements and potential, the sky’s the limit. 1. Quizlet Live. It chooses fresh epithets and fresh metaphors, not so much because they are new, and we are tired of the old, but because the old cease to convey a physical thing and become abstract counters. I am talking here of the revolution in as far as it was an idea; I leave out material causes—they only produce the forces. Imagination cannot but be serious; she sees too far, too darkly, too solemnly, too earnestly, ever to smile. Nothing of the kind; Coleridge uses it in a perfectly definite and what I call dry sense. I always think that the fundamental process at the back of all the arts might be represented by the following metaphor. ‘The object of aesthetic contemplation is something framed apart by itself and regarded without memory or expectation, simply as being itself, as end not means, as individual not universal.’. The “Preface to the Lyrical Ballads” is, at its core, a manifesto of the Romantic movement. Weimar Classicism was a German literary and cultural movement, whose practitioners established a new humanism from the synthesis of ideas from Romanticism, Classicism, and the Age of Enlightenment. This enables me to keep the classical view with an appearance of scientific backing. Now, as I said before, Ruskin was perfectly aware of all this, but he had no such metaphysical background which would enable him to state definitely what he meant. Now it is quite obvious to anyone who holds this kind of theory that any poetry which confines itself to the finite can never be of the highest kind. In his own lifetime, Blake’s poetry was scarcely known. It must be an intense zest which heightens a thing out of the level of prose. 5. Tempests are on a grand scale, but what saves this metaphor from flying off into the realm of the infinite is the use of the adjective ‘tempestuous’ to refer to something as small and everyday as a piece of clothing. I must say here, parenthetically, that I use this word without prejudice to the other discussion with which I shall end the paper. The first lies in the nature of any convention or tradition in art. He was a famous poet of his time. Take Coleridge’s word ‘vital’. I want now to give the reasons which make me think that we are nearing the end of the romantic movement. Emphasized the emotions, an individual intuition. We can observe a similar comparison in Hulme’s poem ‘The Embankment’, which likens the vastness of the starry night sky to a moth-eaten blanket. Something different to what it would assume naturally. Just as in the case of the other instincts, Nature has her revenge. Hulme uses an example from Robert Herrick’s seventeenth-century poem ‘Delight in Disorder’, which describes a woman’s creased petticoat as ‘tempestuous’. His 1841 essay Self-Reliance is a seminal work of Romantic writing in which he exhorts the value of looking inward and determining your own path, and relying on only your own resources.

I want to speak of verse in a plain way as I would of pigs: that is the only honest way.’ Pigs, as the old cliché has it, cannot fly; they roll around in the mud, are bound up with the earth, are down-to-earth creatures. Hulme joined the British army in 1914 and was killed in 1917. One, that man is intrinsically good, spoilt by circumstance; and the other that he is intrinsically limited, but disciplined by order and tradition to something fairly decent. The classical poet never forgets this finiteness, this limit of man. The essence of poetry to most people is that it must lead them to a beyond of some kind. He remembers always that he is mixed up with earth. The process is the exact contrary. There is a much simpler one. 8. I object to the sloppiness which doesn’t consider that a poem is a poem unless it is moaning or whining about something or other. It is not like the Renaissance poetry, in which the sentiments play a vital role in writing poetry. It was new and so it was easy to play new tunes on it. They cannot see that accurate description is a legitimate object of verse. Now this is all worked out in Bergson, the central feature of his whole philosophy. Now at certain times, by the use of either force or rhetoric, these instincts have been suppressed—in Florence under Savonarola, in Geneva under Calvin, and here under the Roundheads. It is always perfectly human and never exaggerated: man is always man and never a god. Examples of Literary Classicism. John Ruskin (1819-1900), the Victorian art and social critic, published Modern Painters from 1843 to 1860. It is for these reasons that Hulme chooses them for the purposes of analogy.

Originally, of course, they both mean the same thing; they first began to be differentiated by the German writers on aesthetics in the eighteenth century. Other poets of the early Romantic period. Verse strictly confined to the earthly and the definite (Keats is full of it) might seem to them to be excellent writing, excellent craftsmanship, but not poetry. Remove all these and the infinite possibilities of man would have a chance. The Society. Where, for want of a better word, is its ‘poetic’ quality? ‘Romanticism and Classicism’ by T. E. Hulme (1883-1917) was posthumously published as part of the 1924 collection Speculations but probably written in 1911-12. You are unable to admit the existence of beauty without the infinite being in some way or another dragged in. I don’t know if I agree with him entirely about Romanticism, but I do find empty, grandiose poetics off-putting. That is the avoidance of conventional language in order to get the exact curve of the thing. To the one party man’s nature is like a well, to the other like a bucket. Indeed, so ingrained in romanticism, so objectionable is this to it, that people have asserted that these were not part of the original song. This always seems to be the case in successful changes; the privileged class is beaten only when it has lost faith in itself, when it has itself been penetrated with the ideas which are working against it. Freshness convinces you, you feel at once that the artist was in an actual physical state. It is a compromise for a language of intuition which would hand over sensations bodily. To prevent one falling into the conventional curves of ingrained technique, to hold on through infinite detail and trouble to the exact curve you want. One of Hulme’s most anthologised pieces, this was probably prepared as a lecture and written around 1911 or early 1912. It is like pouring a pot of treacle over the dinner table. Hulme’s poetry is frequently a lucid embodiment of this classical spirit: larks are not ‘ascending’ (as in the title of the George Meredith poem and Vaughan Williams composition) but are likened to fleas crawling on a human body; the moon is not some grand symbol of beauty but is like the red face of a farmer. It would be a mistake to identify the classical view with that of materialism. When he returned from Brussels, he organized first the Poets’ Club in 1908, where he came to know Ezra Pound, and second a group of writers and thinkers that met at the Café Tour d’Eiffel in London. Second, the concentrated state of mind, the grip over oneself which is necessary in the actual expression of what one sees. When Turner and Constable had done with landscape they left little or nothing for their successors to do on the same lines. It might be said that a century as an organic unity doesn’t exist, that I am being deluded by a wrong metaphor, that I am treating a collection of literary people as if they were an organism or state department. Hulme and Modernism. Objection might be taken to this. A poet says a ship ‘coursed the seas’ to get a physical image, instead of the counter world ‘sailed’. Now, no romantic would have ever written that. That is why the artist’s work seems mysterious. Hulme is the thinker behind the Pound-Eliot revolution in English poetry. At the present time this is the particular group with which the distinction is most vital. Wonder can only be the attitude of a man passing from one stage to another, it can never be a permanently fixed thing. If it is sincere in the accurate sense, when the whole of the analogy is necessary to get out the exact curve of the feeling or thing you want to express—there you seem to me to have the highest verse, even though the subject be trivial and the emotions of the infinite far away. It was presumably named after the city of Weimar, Germany, because the leading authors of Weimar Classicism lived there. If you asked a man of a certain set whether he preferred the classics or the romantics, you could deduce from that what his politics were. On the one hand I would take such diverse people as Horace, most of the Elizabethans and the writers of the Augustan age, and on the other side Lamartine, Hugo, parts of Keats, Coleridge, Byron, Shelley and Swinburne. Here follows a tedious piece of dialectic, but it is necessary for my purpose. Classicism attached much more importance to reason than imagination because imagination could not be explained by their laws. September 1, 2020.

Hulme’s influence in shaping 20th-century thought in art and literature is indisputable. The writers and poets were the first who gave the initial expression to Romantic ideas. The result is that he has to flounder about in a series of metaphors. Images in verse are not mere decoration, but the very essence of an intuitive language. It isn’t the scale or kind of emotion produced that decides, but this one fact: Is there any real zest in it? You feel that for a minute. In ‘Romanticism and Classicism’, Hulme states that there are two basic positions to adopt in relation to humanity: the romantic and the classical.

It grows old and decays. The thing which created enthusiasm, which made the revolution practically a new religion, was something more positive than that. Wordsworth’s Preface to the Lyrical Ballads declares the dawn of English Romantic Movement. This is the point I aim at, then, in my argument. What I mean by classical in verse, then, is this. The positive quality I have talked about can be manifested in ballad verse by extreme directness and simplicity, such as you get in ‘On Fair Kirkconnel Lea’. 2.

The distinction between Imagination and Fancy was made by Coleridge in Biographia Litteraria (1817). You don’t believe in Heaven, so you begin to believe in a heaven on earth. When Shakespeare's works and cultural status emerged during the period between the age of Dryden and the age of Coleridge, no other English poet from both the 18th and 19th century could surpass the superiority that Shakespeare had achieved since his plays were viewed to have expressed various features of human nature. A Correctness of language, and style for a unique, elite, civilized class of people. It is only by a concentrated effort of the mind that you can hold it fixed to your own purpose. Because it has become a party symbol. When I say that there will be another classical revival I don’t necessarily anticipate a return to Pope. There are in prose certain type situations and arrangements of words, which move as automatically into certain other arrangements as do functions in algebra. Given people of the necessary capacity, it may be a vital thing; without them we may get a formalism something like Pope. In his epic film, 2001: A Space Odyssey, the late director Stanley Kubrick used Strauss’s Thus Spake Zarathustra (written in 1896, Strauss based his composition on Friedrich Nietzsche’s book of the same name, listen to it here).Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange similarly … As the reading people are not familiar with his new type of poetry, Wordsworth puts forward a preface to this book. People say: ‘But how can you have verse without sentiment?’ You see what it is: the prospect alarms them. For whatever word you use is at once sentimentalised. A particular convention or attitude in art has a strict analogy to the phenomena of organic life. There is something now to be cleared away before I get on with my argument, which is that while romanticism is dead in reality, yet the critical attitude appropriate to it still continues to exist. You remember his particular hypothesis, that new species came into existence by the cumulative effect of small variations—this seems to admit the possibility of future progress. (Other people take the infamous attitude of the person with catholic tastes who says he likes both.). Hulme met Lasserre in 1911, and gives an account of their meeting in The New Age of 9 November 1911 (‘Mr Balfour, Bergson and Politics’), during which Lasserre ‘endeavoured to prove to me that Bergsonism was nothing but the last disguise of romanticism’. Poetry that isn’t damp isn’t poetry at all. The Neoclassical poets emphasized intellectualism over emotion, society, didacticism, formality, and stylistic … Hulme has little time for such a view.
