The Romantic Imperative : The Concept of Early German Romanticism, Paperback Book

The Romantic Imperative : The Concept of Early German Romanticism Paperback


The Early Romantics met resistance from artists and academics alike in part because they defied the conventional wisdom that philosophy and the arts must be kept separate.

Indeed, as the literary component of Romanticism has been studied and celebrated in recent years, its philosophical aspect has receded from view.

This book, by one of the most respected scholars of the Romantic era, offers an explanation of Romanticism that not only restores but enhances understanding of the movement's origins, development, aims and accomplishments - and of its continuing relevance.
