Mean Egotism

That old anti-romantic, Aaron Haspel, registers his objections to the “egotistical sublime” in Wordsworth. Best line: “The one distinct feature [in the landscape near Tintern Abbey] is Wordsworth himself, who is everywhere, like Ali in the ring.” Bravo Aaron!

For my part, I’ve been thinking a great deal about romantic narcissism, as you’ll see if you care to check out my essay on Canadian “nature poet” Archibald Lampman here. Tonight, at long last, Demo #1-6.

Good Day Friends!
