Abstract

John Baillie's "Essay on the sublime" collects suggestions from previous authors and attempts to bring the concept of sublime to a level of theoretical definition that can hardly be found in previous writings. Its relevance must be measured considering that in the modern age it represents a crucial moment in the genesis of modern thought on the sublime. Furthermore, it is necessary to take into account the fact that Baillie's properly aesthetic approach knowingly and methodologically avoids the drift of the rhetorical-literary analysis that had informed all previous investigations.
