9780199240401: Latin Poetry and the Judgement of Taste: An Essay in Aesthetics

This book argues for a new attention to the importance of beauty and the aesthetic in our response to poetry. Charles Martindale explores ways in which Kant's aesthetic theory, as set out in the Critique of Judgement, remains of fundamental importance for the modern critic. He argues that the Kantian "judgement of taste" is not formalist, and explores the relationship between the aesthetic and the political in our responses to art. Finally he urges the value of aesthetic criticism as pioneered by Walter Pater and others. The (mainly Latin) poems discussed are all translated, and the book will be of interest not only to classicists but to anyone interested in aesthetics, aestheticism, poetry, reception, comparative literature, and critical theory.

About the Author:


Charles Martindale is Professor of Latin in the University of Bristol.

Review:

`...one can applaud Charles Martindale's bold call for a criticism that does not panic or dissemble when faced with the power of (say) Latin poetry to move and interest us now, in such different historical circumstances and such a different moral, and political, world.' Times Literary Supplement

Book Description Book Condition: New. Oxford University Press, 2004. 280p. Hardback. His style is bold, full of asides, playful, and sometimes aphoristic; he can be confrontational and provocative and is always alert to semantic richness and eager to exploit its effects in English and Latin. The readings of Horace, Catullus, Propertius, Virgil, Lucretius, Ovid and Lucan contained in the book show what a skilled close reader Martindale is, combining a wide learning with a remarkable imaginative force. Modern Language Review Volume 102 part 1 | d 01/01/07 (Publisher's information). Condition: New Print on Demand. Printed on Demand. Bookseller Inventory # 36774
