Yeats's Latent Keats / Keats's Latent Yeats

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  23 October 2020

Abstract

Keats's tracks into the nineteenth century angle toward a “modernism” often defined at his expense—yet with latent identifications. In relations of past and present, figurai identifications may register in nuances different from conscious allusion or the psychodramas of influence, ravages and resistance, hauntings and felt belatedness that issue in self-interested misreadings. “Latent Keats” and “Latent Yeats” play into an important, underreported current in both Keats studies and Yeats studies: a “Long Romanticism” in intimate verbal figures that trouble any “Modernism” of definitional difference from “Romantic.” Keats's writing harbors figures to which Yeats could respond, even correspond, vexed as he was by “Keats” as the name for the puerile outsider's dreamy sensuousness that a proper “modernist” needed to spurn. Such complication is one of the variable formations by which a “modernist” program manages to conjure the “Romantic” precedence it would supersede.
