English IV

2008 Midterm Review

radical change of novel in temporal whatever the hell (bakhtin) Past is presented as complex and unknowable like the present.
maximal contact with the present in a novel (Bakhtin) there is continuity between past and present
comic familiarization with the image of man (bakhtin) you can see contradictions, so it's real and funny.
dynamic authenticity (Bakhtin) character can develop which is realistic
man is inexhaustible (Bakhtin) he's infinitely explorable.
purpose of poetry (Sidney) an art of imitation to teach and delight
Purpose of poetry (Sidney) virtuous action or to teach and delight
Poetry vs. philosophy and history philosophy is lamed by lack of real example and history is tied to reality, not ideals. So poetry, having both precept and example, is better.
poetry and nature the poet either improves nature or brings entirely new nature into being.
poetry and lying the poet affirms nothing and therefore never lies.
mimesis imitation
complex plot is accompanied by reversal, recognition, or both
reversal (aristotle) the protagonist's actions produce an effect that is the opposite of his intentions
anagnorisis recognition of one's tragic fate
Peripeteia the action that all the proceeding events stem from, like the peak of a hill after which the rock rolls down.
