Contents: Part 1 Prolegomena to a Yeatsian metaphysic: mercury sublimate - gender, revolution and the Burkean sublime; the smell of the fire - Kant, aesthetics, morality and culture - night or joy; Yeats, the negative and positive sublime. Part 2 Ascending breathless starlit air - the beautiful and the positive sublime: eternal beauty - early transcendental aesthetics; the labour to be beautiful - constructing an aesthetic; living beauty - aesthetic accommodation of history and society; the language of illusion; "A Vision" and the transcentental. Part 3 A dancer wound in his own entrails - the negative sublime: the frivolous eye - Yeatsian epiphany and the violence of God; desire and the fascist dream - destructive/creative violence in society; heart's victim and its torturer - wounds of the subject-object mystery. Part 4 Whence did all that fury come?: starlit air - the positive sublime; the stream that's roaring by - the tragedy of history; moving upon silence - alternating visions of sublimity.
Responsibility: Jefferson Holdridge.
