Sample text

Mir muoz der iemer lieber sin der mir ist guot, he writes in the service of Friedrich3: “How shall I pay court to him who treats me ill? ” Or in plain English, I shall praise the one who knows how to reward me suitably. Such frankness must not be mistaken for naivete; tactically it is very shrewd. 4 The shamelessness of such lines, their lack of restraint, the easy conscience with which they are uttered, all the qualities in fact that we find painful or incomprehensible in them, are characteristic.

S. Eliot acknowledged the monarchy and the Anglican Church; does The Waste Land thereby become an edifying plea for a literature of the day before yesterday? Can a confining political viewpoint of the author cast the poetic revolt of these verses into chains? Since Plato’s day, of course, the self­ appointed ideological watchdogs have always considered view­ points more important than the objective social content of poetry. This content can be found only in the language of poetry, the discovery of which presupposes an ear.

This patronage certainly does not owe its existence to any special liking for poets on the part of the rul­ ers. The Maecenas-like gesture always has about it something of the pious fraud when exercised ex officio, since the reason for it is not the overlord’s appreciation of art, or his generosity, but the fact that in the last resort it protects the protector from the pro­ tege, from the threat to his rule inherent in poetry itself. Feudal society never lost its awareness of this, as can be seen in even the most vapid eulogistic routine, and trashiest and most servile dedi­ catory verses.
