(Roman)ticism by Larry H. Peer

This study presents a new approach to the theory of Romanticism. Peer proceeds though key Romantic documents about form and structure, while displacing and condensing modern scholarly assumptions that interrupt modern theoretical protocol. A line of development is suggested, moving from eighteenth-century explorations in Kant, Fielding, and Diderot, through Schlegelian Romantic beginnings, and on through Emily Brontë, Pushkin, and the Romantic Manifesto, culminating in the profound achievement of Manzoni. Summarizing Romantic narrative implications by looking at the modern discipline of Comparative Literature, this book deliberately deforms both our contemporary ideas about Romanticism as well as our non-Romantic way of teaching it.
