9781230423470: Lectures on Rhetoric and Belles-Lettres

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1822 edition. Excerpt: ... Q. To what defects is it liable ? A. To its being founded wholly on the civil wars, and being of too recent a date. Q, What is the machinery ? A. Of the worst kind, that of allegorical beings. Discord, Cunning, and Love appear as personages ; which is contrary to every rule of rational criticism. Q. What are its sentiments ? A. High and noble. Q, Can Paradise Lost properly be classed among epic poems ? A. It is doubtful, because its subject is so remote from the affairs of this world ; but wherever it be placed, it is one of the highest efforts of poetical genius. Q, In what does this poem chiefly differ from other epics ? A. In this--that Angels and Devils are not the machinery, but principal actors ; and what in others is the marvellous, is here only the natural course of events. Q, What may be said of the subject ? A. That it is one for which Milton alone was fitted. Q. How has he conducted it ? A. In a manner which shows a stretch of imagination and invention perfectly wonderful. Q, How has he supported his characters ? A. With great propriety. Satan is the best drawn of any in the poem. Q, What is Milton's great and distinguishing excellence ? A. Sublimity. Q. How does Milton's sublimity compare with Homer's ? A. It possesses more of a calm and amazing grandeur. Q, What merit have his language and versification ? A. High. His style is full of majesty, and wonderfully adapted to his subject. Q, What are the faults of Milton ? A. He is too theological and metaphysical; sometimes harsh in his language, and often ostentatious in his learning. Q, To what are his faults to be attributed ? A. To the pedantry of the age in which he 1 lived. Q, Where does this poem place its author ? A. In the first rank of poets. DRAMATIC POETRY-- TRAGEDY....

From the Publisher:

This new edition of Hugh Blair's Lectures on Rhetoric and Belles Lettres, edited by Linda Ferreira-Buckley and S. Michael Halloran, answers the need for a complete, reliable text.

Although the extent of its influence cannot be measured fully, Blair's Lectures on Rhetoric and Belles Lettres was undoubtedly a primary vehicle for introducing many eighteenth- and nineteenth-century scholars to classical rhetoric and French belletristic rhetoric-its success due in part to the ease with which the lectures combine neoclassical and Enlightenment thought, accommodating emerging social concerns. Ferreira-Buckley and Halloran's extensive treatment revives the tradition of belletristic rhetoric, improving the understanding of Blair's place in the study of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century discourse, while finding him relevant in the twenty-first.

This edition also includes an introduction by the editors along with a table of variants in the 1783 and 1785 editions of the lectures, prepared by Gary Layne Hatch and Lara Calder. This edition contains forty-seven lectures and remains faithful to the text of the 1785 London edition. The editors contextualize Hugh Blair's motivations and thinking by providing an extended account of Blair's life and era. The bibliography of works by and about Blair is an invaluable aid, surpassing previous research on Blair.

About the Author:

John Marsh is assistant professor of English at Penn State University. In addition to many articles and reviews, he is the author of You Work Tomorrow: An Anthology of American Labor Poetry, 1929-1941, which won the Tillie Olsen Award for Creative Writing.
