Ornamental Aesthetics

The Poetry of Attending in Thoreau, Dickinson, and Whitman

Theo Davis

  • Offers a new theory of ornamentation, which differs from most available accounts in emphasizing attention and accompaniment rather than materiality
  • Asserts a new theory of the poetic practice and commitments of Thoreau, Dickinson, and Whitman
  • Argues for an aesthetically and formally oriented literary criticism, against the historicism, materialism, and empiricism of much contemporary criticism
