Title: The World of Politics and Money: 'Tintern Abbey' and 'Mont Blanc'
Source: Studia Romanica et Anglica Zagrabiensia (0039-3339) (2018)
Paper status: Poslan
Keywords: Tintern Abbey ; Mont Blanc ; Wordsworth ; P.B. Shelley
From Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice which begins with Bassanio owing Antonio money to Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest where Lady Bracknell changes her attitude to Cecily once she learns about her considerable fortune, money seems to be the vital pre-requisite of social control. This paper will focus on the idea that money and especially debt has been the major mode of governance from Renaissance to the Victorian age with special emphasis on Romantic writers such as Wordsworth and Shelley whose money problems affected both their ethics and esthetics. Ever since Jerome McGann asserted that Romantic Ideology lies in the illusion that only a poet and his works can transcend a corrupting appropriation by ‘the world’ of politics and money, the New Historicist critics have tried to escape being entangled in the same ideology. Taking as the starting point the poems such as Tintern Abbey (Wordsworth) and Mont Blanc (Shelley) the paper will try to explore the influence on the Romantic poetics as expressed in the two poems by the controlling power of money and the nature of its possible transcendence.
