Far from being a mere countermovement to Enlightenment, Romanticism is distinguished by a sustained reflection on what constitutes knowledge and what its borders are. The nature of knowledge, whether it is an 'art' or a 'science,' whether it should be 'philosophical,' 'historical' or 'empirical,'– these issues are very much under negotiation during the Romantic period. Assembling selected papers from the 15th International Symposium of the German Society for English Romanticism (GER) – a joint conference with the North American Society for the Study of Romanticism (NASSR) – this volume explores how knowledge of the most diverse disciplines has been represented and refracted in various genres of Romantic writing.

Buchvorschau / Inhaltsverzeichnis (pdf)
"Romanticism and Knowledge never tries to arrive at one unequivocal notion of its broader subject matter and convinces through the expertise and complexity of each chapter. The book takes its reader on a compelling tour of the multitude of its constituents parts, sometimes at variance with one another yet always interconnected. And that, petrhaps, is quite the point."
