Ključne riječi: Romantic autobiography, childhood memories, Wordsworth, De Quincey
In their autobographical writings, both Wordsworth and De Quincey dedicate abundant place to their childhood experiences. As Philippe Ariès claimed, every historical period put an emphasis on a privileged age and a particular division of human life. For the Romantic period, this privileged age is undoubtedly childhood as the consequence of a growing awareness that a child is not 'a miniature adult' but a distinct being. The proposed paper will try to deal with the appearances and disappearances of children who figure prominently in Wordsworth’s poems such as ‘The Prelude’ and ‘The Excursion’ and De Quincey’s ‘Confessions of an English Opium-Eater’ and ‘Suspiria de Profundis’. One of the basic premises for the paper will be the idea that the concept of Romantic childhood is riven with loss and death which consequently has an impact on the building-up of a distinct Romantic subjectivity (a process which distinguishes Wordsworthian ‘egotistical sublime’ from De Quincey’s unstable, self-divided subjectivity). Interestingly enough De Quincey came upon Wordsworth’s poem ‘We Are Seven’ from Lyrical Ballads in 1799 and he was immediately impressed by it. He was also one of the few people to read ‘The Prelude’ in manuscript (as it would be published posthumously in 1850) and his ‘theory of involutes’ is directly linked to Wordsworth’s concept of the ‘spots of time’. Through the close reading of their ‘childhood passages’ in the above-proposed poems, the paper will focus on ‘lost children’ and the possibilities of their retrieval by memory and dreams.
