Overview

Literature and Music in the Romantic Movement-the twenty-four literary historians, musicologists, and philosophers who have contributed to this book have taken the conjunction "and" seriously. The eminently Romantic goal of unifying these two arts is scrutinized from several different angles in the attempt to break new critical ground both on aesthetic principles and in re-approaching some well-known works in "mixed genres" typical of the movement. Hans Schulte reminds us in his retrospect that what was a longed-for goal for the Romantics had once been a given, a fait accompli, to the ancient Greeks. But the book is not backward looking; on the contrary, it reveals both the aesthetic revolution at the beginning of the nineteenth century and its far reaching impact - as the title indicates - through the nineteenth and into the twentieth century. The editors from the "Preface". Co-published with McMaster University.
