原始语种摘要: As she recites the story of her courting by the hideous Polyphemus and resings his serenade, Galatea makes use of the creative power of visualization to conjure up his presence. She shows how alien he is to her world of beauty and love, but she lingers on his grotesque appearance and actions as her would-be lover. By such lingering, she demonstrates that he is not alien to the poet's idea of poetry about love and beauty. The presence of the grotesque undermines the logical stability of poetry that considers the non-beautiful foreign to its aesthetic reception.
