British Literature Notes (10/03/16 & 10/05/16)- She Stoops to Conquer and Intro to Romantic poetry She Stoops to Conquer Acts 4 and 5 and Final Thoughts Friendships and what makes one successful: - Making up and forgiveness - Hastings and Tony- Hastings and Marlow think Tony is dumb and unreliable (209), but at the end of Act 5 Hastings considers Tony a man of his word (215), Tony points out that Hastings just changed his mind about him o Friendship will have some element of argument, we must give each other the chance to make up and not destroy the friendship - Marlow and Hastings- Hastings did not tell Marlow that they were not at an inn, Marlow is given Ms. Neville’s jewels for safe keeping but gives them back to Mrs. Hardcastle, Ms. Neville points out their folly and they come to a resolution with each other o Once again they find a resolution, something more important is happening which makes them realize their concern for one another - Mr. Hardcastle and Sir Charles- they have a falling out over Kate and Marlow- Hardcastle says that they are in love but Sir Charles thinks that Kate is lying because he knows that Marlow is shy among upper class girls o They get over this argument pretty fast o They spy on Kate and Marlow by watching them behind the curtain- it works out for them in this play, spying advances the plot in comedies while it dooms characters in tragedies What is Goldsmith saying about parent-child relationships? - It is important to listen to each other - In the end, Tony says that it is all his mother’s fault for spoiling him, Mrs. Hardcastle agrees and they develop a better relationship Social commentary - People of all classes can contribute to relationships and society o Mr. Hardcastle’s servants o Kate is the same person regardless of how she is dressed or who she is pretending to be- Marlow sees more relationship possibilities with some versions of Kate than others, but there is no reason for this - Against materialism o Hardcastle’s simplicity vs. his wife and daughter o Marlow and Hastings treating Hardcastle differently when they think the house is an inn Comedic plot points: - Tony convinces his mother that they are stranded in an area with highway robbers and uses it to scare her. She thinks Mr. Hardcastle is a robber and runs out to defend Tony. Romantic Period Poetry Characteristics of romantic poetry: - “Romance” in this case means more veneration of nature than it does love - Emphasis on individual experience - Poet-prophet- to get this voice they had to focus on their imagination and the individual experience - Geared toward the everyday person so common language was used - Supernatural experience- “romantic hero“- exotic and goes on adventures to far off places - Importance of nature- how they believed one found God - “The spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings” - “Emotion recollected in tranquility” Wordsworth: “I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud” - Contains romantic elements - Uses language for the common man - Form- melodic - Rhyming- works with rhythm to present a gentle tone as if wandering “The Solitary Reaper” - She is alone in a field working and singing to herself, and does not know she is being watched. He is watching her and reflecting. - Nature- she is out in nature and he is walking through nature watching her, she is harvesting which makes her part of the natural cycle - Compared to the last poem- In this poem, he is reflecting on someone else and the subject is a person, not nature itself (although nature is still a big part of the poem) Lord Byron: - He was like the classic famous person, (“first celebrity in England”) and a playboy - He was the epitome of a romantic hero- talented, popular and travelled all over the place “She walks in beauty” - Enjambment- says exotic things to make reader stop, and then he explains it - She is passionate, yet innocent - We don’t know who he is writing about or if he even knows her Coleridge: “Frost at Midnight” - It is a quiet night and his baby is there with him - His companion is the only other thing moving in a still and quiet world - He journeys back in time to his childhood and being in school- he believes that he missed out on nature - He does not what to send his child to school but wants him to be exploring in nature and learn about God through nature - What is the “secret ministry of frost?”
