This course traces a number of themes which were first expressed in the
writings of European Romantics during the early nineteenth century and which
shaped European and American intellectual history throughout the twentieth
century. Such themes are, for example, love, emotion, nature, spirit, solitude,
the miraculous, the sublime, and mental insanity. Texts (three novels, an
autobiographical memoir, a short story, an essay, poems, letters, and fairy
tales) include works by Rousseau, Goethe, Jane Austen, the Grimm brothers,
E.T.A. Hoffmann, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Jack Kerouac.
