Description

This study shows that the aesthetic of the dramatic monologue and the experience for the reader is neither empirical nor relativistic, but an exercise in faith that follows romanticism in creating a poetry which attempts to reaffirm a moral through an artistic product in which poet and reader jointly come to a common judgement.
