First published in 1940. The Byronic Teuton explores the delineation in German literature, between 1800 and 1933, of certain pessimistic ideas and emotions that were being expressed by writers, artists and academics. This manifestation of negative sentiments was defined by Hentschel as ‘Byronism’. This title will be of interest to students of literature.
