Shelley’s Adonais: a Fryean Archetypal Perspective

Amjad Alsyouf


This research attempts at approaching Shelley’s poem, Adonais, using Frye’s archetypal criticism. This offers a different reading of Shelley whose poetry has been frequently approached as part of the Romantic literary tradition exhausted by an overemphasis on the conventional Romantic features supposed to be found in Romantic poetry. The Fryean approach to Romantic poetry frees it from the restrictions traditional approaches to literature impose on Romantic literature. From a Fryean perspective, works of literature are treated as part of a universal literary body – a quality that allows a comprehensive reading and treatment of literature. The research concludes with an emphasis on the significance of the Fryean perspective in approaching literature, and in highlighting its role in emphasizing the universality of Shelley’s poetry.

Keywords: Frye, Archetypal Criticism, Adonais, Natural Cycles, Vegetation Myths.
