Overview

Romantic Confusions of the Good: Beauty as Truth, Truth Beauty by Marion Montgomery

With special attention to the Romantic poets from Wordsworth and Coleridge down to Pound and Eliot, distinguished scholar Marion Montgomery explores the disorientation of image and metaphor from reality. The book focuses on the virtues and limits of the intuitive intellect as they are explicated by Thomas Aquinas in relational intellect, and the "Romantic" poet's dependence upon the intuitive and rational modes of intellectual action, two species of "romanticism" centering in presumptuous autonomy emerge: that of the poet and that of the scientist.
