Preromanticism

Framsida
Stanford University Press, 1991 - 500 sidor
Using an outmoded term in an entirely new way, Preromanticism seeks the common ground of British literature from 1740 to 1798, not in the foreshadowing of Romanticism but in terms of incomplete discoveries and in impediments to expression that Romanticism was to lift. This fresh conceptualization of the second half of the 18th century, touching on French and German as well as British literature, aims to invigorate the imagination of the reader by audacious textual conjunctions (Rasselas and Tristram Shandy, She Stoops to Conquer and An Evening Walk), through its theoretical authority, and its interpretive energy.
