10. Southey's "New System": The monitorial controversy and the making of the "entire man of letters"

Author:Duggett,Tom

Source:Romanticism on the Net,2012,Vol.

Abstract:This essay reads Southey's repeated writings between 1806 and 1812 on the "monitorial method" of education, and the religious-political controversy over its invention and application. I suggest that this repetitive writing provides insights into Southey's career, as well as wider issues of Romantic historicism, originality, authorial integrity, and system. The first section considers Southey's associative style, and his connection between the use of humiliating punishments in Joseph Lancaster's monitorial schools and the threat of domestic revolution. The second section reads Southey's support for Lancaster's rival Andrew Bell as part of his search for a systematic basis for the pro-war and anti-Catholic terms of his conservatism, in the context of the periodical culture-wars between the Quarterly and the Edinburgh Review. Section three then explores Southey's changing position in the Bell-Lancaster controversy in the light of his "art of historical book-keeping," and suggests a contorted literary consistency behind the alleged political "apostasy." The coda reflects on the contrast of system and style between Southey and Coleridge, and their diverging visions of education and the "national church". © Tom Duggett, 2013.

12. Arthur Schopenhauer, Evolution, and Ecology in Thomas Hardy's The Woodlanders

Author:Heaney, J

Source:NINETEENTH-CENTURY LITERATURE,2017,Vol.71

Abstract:This essay takes issue with two truisms within Thomas Hardy criticism: first, the widely accepted view that The Woodlanders (1887) is Hardy's most "Darwinian" work; and second, the standard assumption that Arthur Schopenhauer's influence on Hardy's writing can be discerned specifically in the works from Tess of the D'Urbervilles (1891) onward, and primarily in the unrelenting pessimism that characterizes both writers' worldviews. The essay calls into question the simplification underlying both positions by suggesting ways in which Schopenhauer's metaphysics may have influenced Hardy's treatment of evolutionary themes in The Woodlanders, paying particular attention to Hardy's choice of plant life as the dominant metaphor within the novel, and the numerous ways in which the evolutionary model it depicts diverges from that formulated by thinkers such as Charles Darwin and Herbert Spencer. It argues furthermore that Schopenhauer's philosophy of nature therefore offers the optimum framework through which to interpret Hardy's unique ecological vision in the novel, and calls for renewed attention to the philosopher's proto-phenomenological description of reality, the significance of which has been largely overlooked by recent ecocritical scholars searching for a non-Cartesian framework in which to couch their readings.
