From the Publisher"A good book about the pain of surviving."—Marion Spies, Religion and the Arts.
"This is, moreover, a challenging and often contentious book that deserves to be viewed as a significant contribution to the question of the survival of Romanticism even where it seems to be disavowed most forcefully."—Time Literary Supplement
"At a time when studies of the field remain predominantly structured by historicist paradigms, Romanticism after Auschwitz demonstrates that romanticism cannot be bound by periodization, that it simply remains good to think with. Any reader of Guyer's sober, poignant argument that lyric figure bears witness to a survival that is neither redemptive nor privative will come away from this book both sadder and wiser." —Stephen Goldsmith, University of California at Berkeley
"This is a bracing, brilliant book. In compelling fashion Guyer weaves back and forth between Romantic literature and culture in the aftermath of Auschwitz. She uncovers untold dynamics in texts we thought we knew—by Mary Shelley, Wordsworth, and Coleridge—and provides precise and painstaking readings of Celan, Shakespeare and Resnais' Night and Fog. Altogether, a haunting book about haunting and testimony."—Ian Balfour, York University
