From Enlightenment to Romanticism: Anthology, Part 2
Ian L. Donnachie, Carmen Lavin
Manchester University Press, 2004 - History - 376 pages
This is the second of two anthologies designed to form an interdisciplinary exploration of the changes and transitions in European culture between 1780 and 1830. The collection of extracts in this anthology provide primary and secondary sources on industry and changing landscapes, new forms of knowledge, new conceptions of art and the artist, and the exotic and the Oriental. Each selection is accompanied by a detailed introduction explaining the context and significance of the sources. Extracts in the anthology stimulate questions rather than providing reassuring answers, but provide vital insights to the major events, movements, and personalities of the time. This volume provides an invaluable resource for all students of European culture in the period. A companion volume offers readings on the death of the Old Regime, the Napoleonic phenomenon, and slavery, religion and reform.
