Studien zur Englischen Romantik, Band 8

Michael Meyer (Ed.)
Romantic Explorations - Selected Papers from the Koblenz Conference
of the German Society for English Romanticism


The contributions in the present volume take a fresh look at the various ways in which the Romantics redefined traditional notions of literature, the arts, the humanities, and science, exploring new ground in a literal and a metaphorical sense. In general the essays contained here employ interdisciplinary perspectives, combining literary studies, media studies, architecture, art history, gender studies, history, psychology, and philosophy. These articles add new perspectives on well-known authors and topics, reconsider neglected fields, and examine the interaction between the Enlightenment and Romanticism - often crossing national and cultural boundaries.
