Description
 
Romanticism is crucial to an understanding of modern Western culture. Philosophy, art, literature, music and politics were all transformed in the period between the French Revolution of 1789 and the Communist Manifesto of 1848. This was the age of the “Romantic Revolution,” when modern attitudes to political and artistic freedom were born. When we think of Romanticism, flamboyant figures such as Byron or Shelley spring to mind, but what about Napoleon or Hegel, Turner or Blake, Wagner or Marx? Here is an overview of the  interlocking strands of the movement, focusing on the leading figures in Britain, Germany, France, America, Italy and Russia. “An ideal introduction for both students and general readers.” Over 100 illustrations.
