Description

Originally published in 1955, this book discusses Romantic principles and their interpretation in literary practice, supported by the documentation (with translations) of numerous quotations from the writings of the romantic authors themselves. The emphasis lies on the evolution of Romantic ideas and practices in Germany, in the establishment and formulation of romantic theory by its first exponents.
