Theory[ edit ] The theory of the objective correlative as it relates to literature was largely developed through the writings of the poet and literary critic T. Eliotwho is associated with the literary group called the New Critics. Essays on Poetry and Criticism discusses his view of Shakespeare 's incomplete development of Hamlet's emotions in the play Hamlet.
Eliot uses Lady Macbeth's state of mind as an example of the successful objective correlative: According to Eliot, the feelings of Hamlet are not sufficiently supported by the story and the other characters surrounding him. The objective correlative's purpose is to express the character's emotions by showing rather than describing feelings as discussed earlier by Plato and referred to by Peter Barry in his book Beginning Theory: An Introduction to Literary and Cultural Theory as " According to Formalist criticsthis action of creating an emotion through external factors and evidence linked together and thus forming an objective correlative should produce an author's detachment from the depicted character and unite the emotion of the literary work.
The "occasion" of E. Montale is a further form of correlative.
Origin of terminology[ edit ] The term was first coined by the American painter and poet Washington Allstonwas introduced by T. Eliot, rather casually, into his essay "Hamlet and His Problems" ;its subsequent vogue in literary criticism, Eliot said, astonished him. In "Hamlet and His Problems",  Eliot used the term exclusively to refer to his claimed artistic mechanism whereby emotion is evoked in the audience: Eliot felt that Hamlet's strong emotions "exceeded the facts" of the play, which is to say they were not supported by an "objective correlative".
He acknowledged that such a circumstance is "something which every person of sensibility has known"; but felt that in trying to represent it dramatically, "Shakespeare tackled a problem which proved too much for him".
Criticisms[ edit ] One possible criticism of Eliot's theory includes his assumption that an author's intentions concerning expression will be understood in one way only.
This point is stated by Balachandra Rajan as quoted in David A. He makes reference to T.
Eliot's topic, "the Objective Correlative", as the subject being every girl, or any girl. In adherence to this reference, the author allows himself the literary license to step outside the scope of his personal experience, and to conjecture about the emotions and responses inherent with the situation, and utilize the third party perspective in the first party presentation.FEW critics have even admitted that Hamlet the play is the primary problem, and Hamlet the character only secondary.
And Hamlet the character has had an especial temptation for that most dangerous type of critic: the critic with a mind which is naturally of the creative order, but which through some weakness in creative power exercises itself in criticism instead.
