       Conclusion 
520    Defining poetry as the 'overflow of powerful feelings' and
       'emotion recollected in tranquillity', Wordsworth adopts 
       two of the key claims of British Whig aesthetics: the 
       centrality of affect to human being, and the need to 
       regulate said affect. Wordsworth continues that poetry is 
       feeling and that the metered pleasure of poetry makes it 
       possible for the reader to field emotions otherwise 
       difficult to bear. Wordsworth and the Passions of Critical
       Poetics presents a new political Wordsworth: an artist who
       regards poetry as a 'relatively autonomous' space in which
       to liberate, experiment with, and redistribute affect. No 
       slave of Whig ideology, Wordsworth investigates how poetic
       emotion generates human experience and meaning. He renders
       poetry a critical instrument that, through its acute 
       sensitivity to feeling, can evaluate public and private 
       life. If Whig feeling is the origin of Wordsworth's poetry,
       pleasure in and of itself, available to all, is its end
