Abstract

This thesis discusses two main topics. Firstly, it explains the value of aesthetic literary criticism as opposed to ideological critical methods. Secondly, this thesis contains a formal, aesthetic analysis of Edgar Allan Poe’s “Colloquy of Monos and Una.” This analysis exemplifies the value of aesthetic criticism by deconstructing the colloquy’s form and content and considering how the relationship between form and content affects an interpretation of Poe’s work.
