This third issue of "Romantik: Journal for the Study of Romanticisms" contains a theme section: "Renegotiations of romanticism". This special theme brings together various examinations of the ways in which romanticism continues to play an important role in a post-romantic age. The reason for inviting contributions examining the afterlife of romanticism in national and international settings is to explore how we may understand it as not just a past event or artistic movement, but as an ongoing process of cultural development. The contributions provide new insights into post-romantic art -- both from the perspective of the artists and in terms of how their works were received. In addition to the articles featured in the theme section, this issue also contains contributions that shed new light on both canonical and lesser-known works from the romantic period -- including analyses of poetry, novels, and travelogues. As in previous issues, Romantik is richly illustrated. With contributions by Mitchell B Frank, Karin Sanders, Silje Svare, Sigrun Asebo, Anne Gry Haugland, Klaus Muller-Wille, Elisa Muller-Adams, Jennifer Wawrzinek and Per-Arne Bodin.
A part of the journal Romantik: Journal for the Study of Romanticisms. This inaugural issue of Romantik: Journal for the Study of Romanticisms contains seven articles that explore the connection between Romanticism and the political sphere. This topic has long been in need of redefinition. By gathering work from across disciplines with an interdisciplinary or cross-cultural scope, the topic is opened up to new perspectives of investigation. The articles in this first issue present new and exciting analyses of such diverse discourses as mythology, the fairy tale, historiography, elite culture, landscape painting, sculpture and dreaming.
The articles in this second issue of "Romantik" demonstrate the crucial role of emergent regionalism and nationalism within the Romantic movement. But, the contributors also explore how the transmission of ideas and inspiration took place across national as well as linguistic boundaries, and how knowledge was transferred from one domain of knowledge to another. The articles provide a new map of such cultural exchanges in the Romantic era and the multiplicity of agencies that made them possible. "Romantik" continues to place the plurality of European Romanticisms within a comprehensive and multi-lingual context.
How does literature work? And what does it mean? How does it relate to the world: to politics, to history, to the environment? How do we analyse and interpret a literary text, paying attention to its specific poetic and fictitious qualities? This wide-ranging introduction helps students to explore these and many other essential questions in the study of literature, criticism and theory. In a series of introductory chapters, leading international scholars present the fundamental topics of literary studies through conceptual definitions as well as interpretative readings of works familiar from a range of world literary traditions. In an easy-to-navigate format, Literature: An Introduction to Theory and Analysis covers such topics as: *Key definitions - from plot, character and style to genre, trope and author *Literature's relationship to the surrounding world - ethics, politics, gender and nature *Modes of literature and criticism - from books to performance, from creative to critical writing With annotated reading guides throughout and a glossary of major critical schools to help students when studying, revising and writing essays, this is an essential introduction and reference guide to the study of literature at all levels
The articles in this number of Romantik include new research on reverie and dream as the locus of metaphor in Percy Bysshe Shelley's Prometheus Unbound; an enquiry into the Royal Swedish Society for the Publication of Manuscripts Relating to Scandinavian History and the role it played in the construction of national memory and heritage; a discussion of Philippe Jacques de Loutherbourg's and John Martin's iconographies of the sublime in the intersection between art and popular visual spectacle; archival discoveries related to the publication of medieval romance in early nineteenth-century Britain; and a reassessment of The Prelude as a formation narrative, arguing that William Wordsworth displays a conflicted attitude to the growth and progress usually found in the Bildungsroman. The journal also contains reviews of new books on the romantic period published in the Nordic countries.
Selected by Choice magazine as an Outstanding Academic Title In The Freudian Reading, Lis Moller examines the premises, procedures, and objectives of psychoanalytic reading in order to question the kind of knowledge such readings produce. But above all, she questions the role of Freud as master explicator. Although Freud has been seen as a great synthesizer, Moller contends that his significance as a reader lies elsewhere. For Moller, this significance lies in the way Freud presses his inquiry to the point where he encounters something he cannot explain or that he can only explain at the risk of overthrowing previous conclusions. Such "moments of crisis" occur repeatedly in Freud's work, causing him to swerve from his original train of thought, or even to call into question the theoretical foundation of his interpretation. The dominant line of argument, therefore, is frequently punctuated with problems and questions. If we concentrate on these, Moller argues, we are forced to reconsider the traditional conception of a "Freudian reading" and to reassess our perceived notions of just what kind of reader Freud was. While The Freudian Reading is based on a wide range of Freud's writings, it concentrates on four central texts: Delusions and Dreams in Jensen's "Gradiva", From the History of an Infantile Neurosis, "The Uncanny," and "Constructions in Analysis." The discussion does not progress chronologically. Rather, it explores the ways in which these texts interact: how they reflect, comment on, and contradict one another. The Freudian Reading is a concentrated, subtle analysis of Freud's interpretive practice, with special reference to his interpretations of literary texts. It will be of interest to scholars and students of literary theory and criticism as well as to readers in the field of psychoanalysis.
A wide spectrum of critical approaches to the works of German, English, American, French, and Scandinavian Romantic writers is displayed in these fifteen essays. Of primary importance to the contributors is the correlation between literature, art and theory in romantic writing; they also discuss the interstices between Romanticism and 20th century theory. The work of Novalis, Schelling, Nietzsche and Foucault, Coleridge and Humboldt, Atterbom, Hoffmann, Wordsworth and Turner, Carus, Kierkegaard, Schlegal, Dickinson and Whitman, Blake, Tieck, Grimm, Keats, and De Quincey are places in the context of modern theoretical paradigms. These chapters are grouped under thematic headings: Language and semiotics; Image, imagery, and imagination; Dreatasy and the unconscious; and History and intertext. This anthology will be of great value to students and scholars interested in Romantic aesthetic and literary theory as well as the boundaries between literature, theory and philosophy.
