Romanticism and Political Fiction
HIST 385
Fall 2013 not offered

To assess the problems and concepts that, taken together, are considered to demarcate Romanticism, this seminar will focus on a small number of novels from before, during, and after the traditional Romantic period. This course will test the premise that the theory of this time often lagged behind the literature in terms of the development of abstract political and economic ideas. In addition, the particular texts for consideration in this class, from six countries and five languages, offer intriguing test cases of the frustrations and rewards of studying texts and translations.
