This chapter presents some final thoughts from the author. It returns to Keats and Shelley in order to demonstrate just how both poets explore “negatively capable” models of subjectivity that oppose the kind of “identity-thinking” Adorno warns us against. Indeed, the negativity that runs in their work draws attention to the complex relations through which the dispossessed subject comes to bear no (re)productive possibility, no referential positivities that might announce it as a pivot point for ethical and aesthetic reflection.

Keywords:   Keats, Shelley, poets, poetry, subjectivity
