Romanticism and the Self-Conscious Poem

Michael O'Neill

Oxford University Press

Many Romantic poems explore experience in the act of reflecting on themselves or on the nature of poetry. What, though, of the self-conscious poem in the hands of post-Romantic practitioners? This chapter addresses the question chiefly by way of close readings of two poems, one each by Wallace Stevens and W. B. Yeats.

Keywords:   poetry, Wallace Stevens, self-consciousness, W. B. Yeats
