Romanticism & Classicism

hulme2(1)7,106 words

I want to maintain that after a hundred years of romanticism, we are in for a classical revival, and that the particular weapon of this new classical spirit, when it works in verse, will be fancy.[1] 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.

T. S. Eliot, Part 1

Wyndham Lewis, Portrait of T. S. Eliot, 1938

5,352 words

Part 1 of 2

World War I brought to a climax a cultural crisis in Western Civilization that had been proceeding for centuries, when, in the Spenglerian sense, Money overwhelmed Tradition,[1] or, to resort even to Karl Marx, the bourgeoisie supplanted the aristocracy.[2] Industrialization accentuated the process of commercialization, with its concomitant urbanization and the disruption of organic bonds and social cohesion, which has thrown societies into a state of perpetual flux, with culture reflecting that condition.

Re-Reading Rousseau

Maurice Quentin de La Tour, “Portrait of Jean-Jacques Rousseau” (1712–1778), pastel on paper, 1753

10,607 words

Translated by Greg Johnson*

Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712–1778) is a rather curious case in the history of ideas. After two centuries, he is still the object of truly passionate opinions (you either love him or you hate him), and few authors have given rise to as many contradictory interpretations. He is commonly seen as an inspiration for the French Revolution, but also as an influence on German nationalism. Read more …
