Book Description New York : Julian Press, 1957., 1957. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. 2 v. in 1., 217, 196 pp. ; : illustrated. ; 25 cm. ; LCCN: 57-11940 ; OCLC: 376896 ; LC: BL460; Dewey: 291.212 ; Contents: v. 1. A discourse on the worship of Priapus and its connection with the mystic theology of the ancients / by R.P. Knight -- v . 2. The worship of the generative powers during the Middle Ages of western Europe / by T. Wright. ; Richard Payne Knight (1750-1824) was a classical scholar and connoisseur. ; "Knight's discussion of 'the passions' engages with both Classical and recent theorisations of sentiments. His discussion of the sublime is directed against Burke's emphasis on feelings of terror and powerlessness. Knight defends Longinus's original account of sublimity, which he summarises as the 'energetic exertion of great and commanding power.' Again he intertwines social and aesthetic reasoning, asserting that the power of a tyrant cannot be sublime if the tyrant inspires fear by mere arbitrary whim, like Nero. However, it may be sublime if his tyranny, like Napoleon's, derives from the exercise of immense personal capacities. A Nero may be feared, but would also be despised. A Napoleon may be hated, but will nevertheless inspire awe." ; A member of the Society of Dilettanti, Knight bequeathed his collection of bronzes, coins, engraved gems, marbles, and drawings to the British Museum. ; blue cloth with gold lettering ; no dustjacket ; edges sunned ; VG.
