Abstract

This is the first work to study the relationship between the rise of science in the 17th and 18th centuries and the rise to major genre status of the lyric genre. It argues that the epistemological, linguistic, and methodological principles which underlay the rise of the new science also influenced the ways in which poets and critics conceived of the significance and cultural value of the lyric genre. Relying on a wide range of critical commentary from the 17th to the late 18th century, much of it from little known or unknown critical writings, the study shows how the lyric genre became the key for understanding poetry and the function of poetry. It offers a model for understanding the relationships between literature and other cultural experiences, encouraging critical, historical, and multi-disciplinary research.
