Song” is the place where “wrong” finds itself named; the chances of rhyme seem almost tyrannies as they demand song thrives on wrong. And the very conclusion, with its sense that “lute” and “wreath” (l. 17) will ensure her fame cannot dispel the impression that the poet lives to write, rather than writes about living. Poetry, “The Rhythmical Creation of Beauty,” in Poe’s suggestive phrase from his “The Poetic Principle” (Poe 1982: 894), may demand a heavy price, it sometimes seems, from Romantic makers of short poems, but the continual drive in these poems is toward a tenacious sense of artistic recompense.

Italian fathers thus, with barb’rous rage, Fit helpless infants for the squeaking stage; Deaf to the calls of pity, Nature wound, And mangle vigour for the sake of sound. Churchill 1761a: 17). The simile borrows power from a concealed truth. Verse is continuously and ineliminably a process of cutting into language and cutting it up. Nowhere are these ornaments of incision more markedly shown than in Pope’s verse. So to compare verse to castration for the song’s sake is no chance link – and, of course, it reminds us that the voices of castrati were very widely admired indeed, a reminder which brings out that ambivalence which is often present in the kind of complaint Churchill is developing here.
