Sample text

If we follow up its own metaphor here, is the poem Collins sees as subject to torture best understood as an innocent victim or an insurgent, as harmless or a threat to good order? Fiction can be dangerous. Freed from confinement to the author’s experience, allowed to remain plural, ambiguous, or undecidable, it addresses questions to readers, promoting reflection, deliberation. ’ points out that the identity of the writer began to matter only when authors became punishable – for heresy or other forms of transgression.

And in practice our classic English critics had always known it. 24 What in his view distinguished poetry from its duller rivals, history and philosophy, was pleasure. ’26 In all these instances the enjoyment is integral to the process of instruction, not an incidental extra that can be ignored at will. 28 So crucial is it that the pleasure may even eclipse the teaching. 29 Yes, indeed. We might applaud the comment without endorsing the implied reprimand. In a word, it has been obvious to generations of critics that pleasure constitutes the lure which incites us to read the text or to join the audience.

And inside academic publishing, critical biography has gradually acquired increasing cachet. For an earlier generation (mine) an account of the life and times of the author was seen as research-lite. Now, however, it’s scholarship. In 2008 the Report of the UK Government Research Assessment Exercise Panel on English Language and Literature celebrated the particular strength of scholarly biography. Critical biography offers its own form of enjoyment but this is not to be mistaken for the pleasure of the text.
