Product Description

Though its origins were much earlier, Neoclassicism dominated English literature from the Restoration in 1660 until the end of the 18th century. Work of Shakespeare, the novel of sensibility & emergence of Gothic attitudes in the development of a cult of Nature, influence of German romantic thought, rise of Methodism & political events like American & French revolutions established the intellectual & emotional foundations of English Romanticism. Neoclassicism was a reaction against the optimistic, exuberant & enthusiastic Renaissance view of man as a being fundamentally good & possessed of an infinite potential for spiritual & intellectual growth. Neoclassical theorists, saw man as an imperfect being, inherently sinful, whose potential was limited. They replaced the Renaissance emphasis on imagination, on invention & experimentation & mysticism with an emphasis on order & reason, on restraint, on common sense, & on religious, political, economic & philosophical conservatism. They maintained that man himself was the most appropriate subject of art & saw art itself as essentially pragmatic/as valuable because it was somehow useful/as something which was properly intellectual rather than emotional. Hence their emphasis on proper subject matter; & their attempts to subordinate details to an overall design, to employ in their work concepts like symmetry, proportion, unity, harmony & grace, which would facilitate the process of delighting, instructing, educating & correcting the social animal which they believed man to be. Their favorite prose literary forms were the essay, letter, satire, parody, burlesque & moral fable; in poetry, favorite verse form was rhymed couplet, which reached its greatest sophistication in heroic couplet of Pope; theatre saw the development of the heroic drama, melodrama, sentimental comedy & comedy of manners. The fading away of Neoclassicism appeared to represent the last flicker of Enlightenment, but artistic movements never really die.
