A wide spectrum of critical approaches to the works of German, English, American, French, and Scandinavian Romantic writers is displayed in these 15 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 works of Novalis, Schelling, Nietzsche and Foucault, Coleridge and Humbolt, Atterbom, Hoffman, Wordsworth and Turner, Carus, Kierkegaard, Schlegel, Dickinson ad Whitman, Blake, Tieck, Grimm, Keats, and De Quincey are placed in the context of modern theoretical paradigms. The chapters are grouped under thematic headings: language and semiotics; image, imagery, and imagination; dream, fantasy and the unconscious; and history and intertext. This anthology should be of interest to students and scholars interested in Romantic aesthetic and literary theory as well as the boundaries between literature, theory and philosophy.
