9780674744264: Theory of the Lyric

What sort of thing is a lyric poem? An intense expression of subjective experience? The fictive speech of a specifiable persona? Theory of the Lyric reveals the limitations of these two conceptions of the lyric―the older Romantic model and the modern conception that has come to dominate the study of poetry―both of which neglect what is most striking and compelling in the lyric and falsify the long and rich tradition of the lyric in the West. Jonathan Culler explores alternative conceptions offered by this tradition, such as public discourse made authoritative by its rhythmical structures, and he constructs a more capacious model of the lyric that will help readers appreciate its range of possibilities.

Theory of the Lyric constitutes a major advance in our understanding of the Western lyric tradition. Examining ancient as well as modern poems, from Sappho to Ashbery, in many European languages, Culler underscores lyric’s surprising continuities across centuries of change―its rhythmical resources, its strange modes of address, its use of the present tense, and the intriguing tension between its ritualistic and fictional dimensions. He defends the idea of lyric as a genre against recent critiques, arguing that lyrics address our world rather than project a fictional world and also challenging the strongly established assumption that poems exist to be interpreted. Theory of the Lyric concludes with a discussion of how to conceive the relations between lyric and society in ways that would acknowledge and respond to lyric’s enduring powers of enchantment.

About the Author:

Jonathan Culler is Class of 1916 Professor of English and Comparative Literature, Cornell University.

Review:

How interesting, how convincing, and how disturbing to received ideas are the features to which Culler draws our attention? How useful or how provocative―for poetry, for thought, and for Theory―are his speculations on the forms and conditions of poetic meaning to which these observations lead? Theory of the Lyric brings Culler’s own earlier, more scattered interventions together with an eclectic selection from others’ work in service to what he identifies as a dominant need of the critical and pedagogical present: turning readers’ attention to lyric poems as verbal events, not fictions of impersonated speech. His fine, nuanced readings of particular poems and kinds of poems are crucial to his arguments. His observations on the workings of aspects of lyric across multiple different structures are the real strength of the book. It is a work of practical criticism that opens speculative vistas for poetics but always returns to poems. (Elizabeth Helsinger Critical Theory 2016-04-01)

Theory of the Lyric, by Culler, is an excellent source for understanding the academics and history of the lyric poem... It will be most appreciated by scholars seeking to understand the structure of this genre of poetry. (K. Gale Choice 2015-11-01)

Jonathan Culler’s book is literally long-awaited―it is the culminating work of one of the most important poeticians of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. (Simon Jarvis, author of Wordsworth’s Philosophic Song)

A capacious and important piece of work. We need someone with the courage to take the broad view, across epochs and Western languages, and Culler is that person. Theory of the Lyric is a crucial intervention in restoring the vibrancy and significance of lyric. (Jahan Ramazani, author of Poetry and Its Others: News, Prayer, Song, and the Dialogue of Genres)

After decades of relative neglect, the last few years have seen a resurgence of interest in the theory of the lyric, and Culler’s wide-ranging study is undoubtedly a milestone in this complicated process. (Francesco Giusti Los Angeles Review of Books 2017-05-27)
