Latin Poetry and the Judgement of Taste

An Essay in Aesthetics

Charles Martindale

This book argues for the value of aesthetics. Charles Martindale shows that Kant's analysis of 'the judgement of taste', the judgement that something is beautiful, remains of fundamental importance for the modern critic. He explores the relationship between form and content in poetry, and between politics and aesthetics in our responses to it, and urges the value of aesthetic criticism as pioneered by Walter Pater.
