The Well Wrought Urn Studies in the Structure of Poetry

A classic that has been widely used by several generations. In my freshman year of college I remembered reading Brooks essay on Keats A Sylvan Historian I was completely engulfed with Mr Brooks interpretation of the poem It gave me a different perspective on how to further analyze Keats Ode on a Grecian Urn Moreover when I read the essay I felt like I was having a conversation with someone who I hoped to emulate one day Years later to use a Bloom word The Well Wrought Urn did not reach the apotheosis of critical writing I remembered reading during my Freshman year My disappoinment led to my ambivalence in rating this book a 3 or a 4 star but gave it a four because it is a great introduction to poetry criticismThe collection is a great start for anyone who would like to further their studies in criticism It gives a close examination of the 10 poems in the collection and it practices a theme of paradoxical interpretation although this theme was a bit contrived the collection was still an elevated criticism of poetry Also I enjoyed the rather simple yet fitting definition Mr Brooks gave of a poet and their occupation He is rather giving us an insight which preserves the unity of experience and which at its higher and serious levels triumphs over the apparently contradictory and conflicting elements of experience by unifying them into a new patternTalk about the anxiety of influence

As far as literary criticism books go this one was reasonably easy to read The language is clear and Brooks doesn t introduce a bunch of unfamiliar terminology that the reader has to spend extra time looking up in order to understand what he s saying

    One of the finest studies of poetry ever written The depth of understanding communicated in these 300 pages goes beyond impressive An essential read even for those who might think that the New Criticism is outdated

    Read the first essay The Language of Paradox on Donne's Canonization on May 21 2018The Language of Paradox3 the language of poetry is the language of paradox; nod to Chesterton as a master of paradoxes; paradox is the language appropriate and inevitable to poetry10 Even the most direct and simple poet is forced into paradoxes far often than we think if we are sufficiently alive to what he is doing11 In Donne's Canonizati

    With the advent of New Formalism Richard Strier Marjorie Levinson Cleanth Brooks is ready to be brought off the book shelf and re considered for the attention which he gives to the poem as an aesthetic object Of course the idea of a self sufficient aesthetic object is of an ideal than a reality often leading to a neglect of important political and contextual readings of a text this caricature of critics like Brooks is being slow
