Romantic Ambiguities

Abodes of the Modern

Romanticism's turn to subjective experience is based on a new awareness of the language- and media-related complexities of authentic representation. It anticipates modernist concerns and, on a more general note, the linguistic and medial turns of the twentieth century. Following James Chandler's insight that Romanticism constitutes "a cultural idiom, a whole way of being in the world", the contributions to this volume ask what is specifically modern in this cultural idiom and in how far the modernity of Romanticism depends on ambiguity as a paradigm of modernity as defined in Christoph Bode's Ästhetik der Ambiguität.
