Joy e dejection : a dualidade essencial romântica
Maria João Pires
AbstractThis article intends to analyse comparatively two romantic poetic texts — Ode on Intimations of Immortality, Recollections ofEarly Childhood by Wordsworth and Dejection an Ode by Coleridge, with particular reference to the terminological-conceptual understanding of 'joy' and 'dejection'. In the context of the analysis an articulation with the romantic essays Preface to Lyrical Ballads by Wordsworth, Biographia Literária by Coleridge, Defence of Poetry by Shelley and some of Keats' letters will be undertaken. The article argues that the essays and poetic texts should be read transversally, thereby benefiting from a constant inter-relationship of poetic notions and attitudes.
