Example text

85 I raise this aspect of Mills’s essay because it strikes me as having a bearing on our reading of Bush, who sometimes offers a traditional male view of the Irish sublime, but who also complicates male positions by rendering more fragmented and oblique his responses to it. For example, we have already noted how in anticipation of his arrival at Lough Neagh Bush remarked on the potential of the place, and how careful development around the Lough’s waterways could transform the local area into a vibrant economy, especially if what the narrator calls its ‘medicinal virtues’ were fully exploited.

In an essay by Sara Mills on Mary Wollstonecraft’s Letters Written during a Short Residence in Sweden, Norway and Denmark (1796), an argument is developed which both distinguishes, yet problematises male and female responses to the sublime. Mills argues that many feminist critics have taken male responses to the sublime to be frequently characterised by a subject-controlling gaze, and that the desire for control, empowerment and possession is what is largely at work within male, sublime discourse.

With its “delightful horror”, [it] is the rich man’s labour, [capable of] invigorating an otherwise dangerously complacent ruling class’,38 a natural development of the eighteenth century when Britain emerged ‘as the world’s leading commercial power, vanquishing its foreign rivals and extending its imperial sway across the globe’. 39 Although Eagleton usefully identifies certain conservative aspects of sublime discourse, showing how it conveyed both the anxieties and the desires of an upper middle class who periodically feared for its future, it is less applicable to Bush than might first appear.
