Abstract

The article focuses on William Collins's "Ode Occasioned by the Death of Mr Thomson" (1748), one of the most refined examples of Collins’s “new lyric”, hovering between the heroic tradition and early Romantic subjectivity. My essay explores Collins’s poetics of the “silent eye” against the interplay of the spatial paradigms informing the poem.
