In Romanticism and Postromanticism, Claudia Moscovici writes that "art criticism, like philosophy, like love itself, depends upon cultivating a lucid passion." This book, which brings a breath of fresh air to the study of enduring themes, is the lucid, engaging result of Moscovici's own passion for literature, philosophy, and art. And it is much more, an enthusiastic appeal to eize the day, to live life to the fullest, complete with a manifesto and a roster of artists who epitomize the aspirations of the postromantic movement. -- William C. Carter, Distinguished Professor of French, University of Alabama at Birmingham
Claudia Moscovici is a historian of ideas, astute reader of literature, and sensitive interpreter of art. Her unusual, original book, vividly written, solidly researched, is both academically sound and passionately committed. Lucid chapters on Rousseau, Mme de Stael, Diderot, Wordsworth and Baudelaire define the aesthetics, ethics, and epistemology of the movement she calls postromanticism, alive today. Exciting to read. -- Edward K. Kaplan, Kaiserman Professor in the Humanities, Brandeis University
