Item description for Romanticism in Theory by Liz Moller...
A wide spectrum of critical approaches to the works of German, English, American, French, and Scandinavian Romantic writers is displayed in these fifteen essays. Of primary importance to the contributors is the correlation between literature, art and theory in romantic writing; they also discuss the interstices between Romanticism and 20th century theory.
The work of Novalis, Schelling, Nietzsche and Foucault, Coleridge and Humboldt, Atterbom, Hoffmann, Wordsworth and Turner, Carus, Kierkegaard, Schlegal, Dickinson and Whitman, Blake, Tieck, Grimm, Keats, and De Quincey are places in the context of modern theoretical paradigms.
These chapters are grouped under thematic headings: Language and semiotics; Image, imagery, and imagination; Dreatasy and the unconscious; and History and intertext.
This anthology will be of great value to students and scholars interested in Romantic aesthetic and literary theory as well as the boundaries between literature, theory and philosophy.
