Encyclopedia > Della Cruscans

The Della Cruscans were a set of English sentimental poetasters, the leaders of them hailing from Florence, that appeared in England towards the close of the 18th century, and that for a time imposed on many by their extravagant panegyrics of one another, the founder of the set being one Robert Merry, who signed himself Della Crusca; he first announced himself by a sonnet to Love, in praise of which Anne Matilda wrote an incomparable piece of nonsense; "this epidemic spread for a term from fool to fool," but was soon exposed and laughed out of existence.

The Della Cruscans’ self-conscious (sentimental) use of language and nature as artifice to represent the "natural" images of the mind acted as a bad precedent to Wordsworth’s desire for a more intense relation to the "natural," such that its representations are indistinguishable from those of the mind.
Part of what complicates Wordsworth’s regendering of Della Cruscan sentimentalism is the confrontation between the real pain of rustic life—an emasculating pain, as evinced in the 1798 lyrical ballads—and the pain of romance so celebrated in the metrical ballads of Percy.
