Gender and Performance in the Earl of Rochester’s Imperfect Enjoyment

- Literature of the English Restoration offers the example of a number of writers who wrote for a courtly audience: literary production, particularly in learned imitation of classical models, was part of the court culture of King Charles II. The fact of a shared model explains the remarkable similarities between “The Imperfect Enjoyment” by the Earl of Rochester and “The Disappointment” by Aphra Behn—remarkable only because readers are surprised to read one poem about male sexual impotence from the late seventeenth century, let alone two examples of this genre by well-known courtly writers....   [tags: Poetry Analysis ]

Rawson explains this attractively in terms of the larger context of Rochester’s verse (and other poems about impotence such as “The Disabled Debauchee”) by suggesting that impotence is just another kinky thing to try. As Rawson himself puts the matter: “As often as not ‘impotence’ is presented in Rochester as an imagined state, on a par with other erotic possibilities…The impotence is thus conceived not as a cessation of erotic energy, but as an energy in its own right, a vigour not so much diminished as gone into reverse….” (Rawson 8)....   [tags: imperfect enjoyment, rochester]

In other words, if one obtains (receives or acquires) pleasure from life, then one’s life is going well. Additionally, the more pleasure a life contains, the better the life (the more prudential value it contains). Feldman, however, promptly classifies two interpretations of pleasure: pleasure as feeling (sensory pleasure) and pleasure as an attitude (the attitude of enjoyment)....   [tags: sensory, attitude, pleasure, hedonism]
