SAMLA 2012: Beyond the Pleasure Principle?

updated: 
Monday, May 14, 2012 - 4:43pm
Comparative Literature Division

We are seeking proposals for the Comparative Literature regular session at this year's South Atlantic Modern Language Association meeting in Durham, NC from November 9 to 11.

------------------------------------------------------

Beyond the Pleasure Principle?

As Lionel Trilling once noted, justifying art by the pleasures it gives has fallen into disrepute since the 18th century. Wordsworth already registers this defensive posture in his Lyrical Ballads preface when he asks that the "necessity of producing immediate pleasure [not] be considered as a degradation of the Poet's art," but rather that artists pay "homage … to the grand elementary principle of pleasure, by which [man] knows, and feels, and lives, and moves."
