Example text

Beckett on Hölderlin (quoted by Patrick Bowles): “His only successes are the points where his poems go on, falter, stammer and then admit failure, and are abandoned. At such points he was most successful” (qtd. in Haynes and Knowlson, 148, n. 14). 15. The phenomenon of the Romantic fragment is clearly relevant here. See Rauber, McFarland, and Rosen, chapter 2, 41-115. For a reading which challenges conventional accounts of this “exemplary Romantic expression,” which is (so the claim goes) “achieved by [its] inachievement” (6), see Levinson.

298, lines 49-54) It seems that unity and separation, wholeness and fragmentation, success and failure, stand in a dialectical relationship in this poem. The visionary utterance produces a split in that relation between poet and community which, for the Romantic poet, endows it with significance in the first place. The urge towards unity undoes itself. This dialectical movement can perhaps be seen as one imaginative response to the problem of writing a successful poem about creative failure. In the various forms of “Dejection” (1802) – whether letter or ode – Coleridge was to confront the same problem even more directly: how can one meaningfully write a poem about no longer being able to write poems?

And, despite the apodictic statement in Coleridge’s 1800 Argument (“many and strange Judgements”), it is no less ambiguous in its nature. Coleridge’s notebook entry dated 30 October 1800 further suggests the intimacy of recursion in writing with both impotence and the obscure experience of obligation: “He knew not what to do – something, he felt, must be done – he rose, drew his writing-desk suddenly before him – sate down, took the pen – & found that he knew not what to do” (Coleridge 1957, 834).
