|標題:||The Structural Truth in Coleridge's Conversation Poems||作者:||Chung-hsuan Tung||關鍵字:||conversation poems;tripartite rondo structure;sandwich structure;one-life theme;structural truth||Project:||Intergrams, Volume 3, Issue 2.||摘要:||
The conversation piece/poem is relaxed and informal in tone, but serious in subject matter. It is a pseudo-conversation. Actually, it is the poet-speaker's soliloquy aiming to tell some philosophical truth through a particular structure. Coleridge is the most successful practitioner of the genre. Analysis of his eight or so conversation poems easily reveals the fact that such poems have a 'tripartite rondo structure' or sandwich structure, with description-meditation-description or nature-man-nature or detail-truth-detail as their basic pattern of ingredients. In fact, such a structure is to intensify the Romantic theme of one life in the universe and the Romantic belief in the beneficial influence of nature on man. Such a structural truth best exemplifies the slogan of 'The form is the content' or 'Structure is truth, truth structure.'
