Summary
"Keats, Hunt and the Aesthetics of Pleasure tackles the age-old interpretative problem of 'pleasure' in Keats's poetry by placing him in the context of the liberal, leisured and luxurious culture of Hunt's circle. Challenging the standard narrative which attributes Keats's astonishing poetic development to his separation from Hunt, the author cogently argues that Keats, profoundly imbued with Hunt's bourgeois ethic and aesthetic, remained a poet of sensuous pleasure until the end of his short career." "The author shows how Hunt's espousal of the new ethics of luxury, his adoption of Theocritean pastoral, his aestheticisation of Spenser's Bower of Bliss and his appropriation of ancient Greek culture all reflected and responded to an increasing middle-class demand for pleasure and prestige; and how Hunt, Keats and other Cockney writers employed the potentially subversive power of poetry of pleasure, not necessarily as a vehicle for social reform but certainly as a means to vindicate the social status of the suburban middle class."--BOOK JACKET
