The second edition of Romanticism: An Anthology is widely regarded as the most comprehensive collection available of poetry and prose by the British Romantics. This magnificent Anthology is now available as a package with David Miall and Duncan Wu's revolutionary Romanticism: The CD-ROM. Both works reflect recent developments in Romantic scholarship, particularly in the expansion of the literary canon. Alongside unabridged texts from canonical writers are works by women and writers in other genres, including political and philosophical writers, diarists, painters, broadside-balladeers, reviewers and letter-writers. Additions for the second edition of the Anthology include Wordsworth's The Ruined Cottage, The Pedlar, Michael, The Brothers, and extracts from The Five-Book Prelude, and the Fourteen-Book Prelude; Coleridge's This Lime-Tree Bower My Prison, Kubla Khan, The Pains of Sleep, Dejection: An Ode, The Eolian Harp, and Frost at Midnight; Byron's Stanzas to Augusta, Epistle to Augusta and Don Juan Canto II. Substantial editorial material includes an introduction exploring the phenomenon of romanticism; detailed annotations and author headnotes providing biographical details; lists of significant recent criticism and in many cases brief critical introductions. The unique, easy to use CD-ROM both incorporates the anthology (in its first edition, including Wordsworth's Prelude (1805) in its entirety) and provides substantial selections from over ninety other writers. Built-in hypertext links enable readers to experience the intertextuality of writing during this period and understand the cultural context in which the texts were created. The CD-ROM offers a huge range of resources including: More than 1200 high-quality graphics, including illustrations, prints and paintings; scenes from the English Lake District, the Alps, and the ruins of Rome and Pompeii; photographs of landscapes and detailed maps. Chronologies. A biographic dictionary of the key figures of the period. A 'tours' feature, which enables teachers or students to build their own routes through the CD-ROM or to take preset introductory tours e.g. through 'slavery'. Romanticism: An Anthology with CD-ROM is the most exciting resource available for students and researchers discovering the Romantic Period.

Romantik und Recht

Recht und Sprache, Rechtsfälle und Gerechtigkeit

Ohne Schuld und Sühne, Belohnung und Strafe, ohne Verbrechen und Leidenschaft, Opfer und Täter kam die Literatur nie aus und die Literatur der Romantik ist wie die Zeit davor und danach durchzogen von Rechtsfällen. Im Zuge der Aufklärung wuchs das Interesse an Rechtsfällen sowie am Verbrecher und seinen Beweggründen. Doch wandelten sich das Rechtssystem und die Rechtsauffassung im Zeitalter der Romantik entscheidend. Vor allem durch die ‚Begründung der Historischen Rechtsschule‘ erhielt die Rechtswissenschaft eine neue Grundlage; der Code civil galt als Verletzung des nationalen Rechtsbewusstseins: „der eigentliche Sitz des Rechts [sei] das gemeinsame Bewußtseyn des Volkes", glaubte Savigny. Die Beiträge der Rechtshistoriker und Literaturwissenschaftler gehen den Fragen von Recht und Gerechtigkeit, Verbrechen und Strafe in rechtshistorischen Werken, in Literatur, Ästhetik und Sprache, aber auch in der Rechtspraxis nach: Die historische Rechtsschule, besonders Grimm, Puchta und Savigny, der Bedeutungswandel von Rechtswörtern, Achim von Arnim, Clemens und Bettina, Bonaventura, E.T.A. Hoffmann, die Grimmschen Märchen, A.W. Schlegels Shakespeare-Übersetzungen, Kleist, Eichendorff und Tieck sind die exemplarisch verhandelten Themen.

Tragic Coleridge

To Samuel Taylor Coleridge, tragedy was not solely a literary mode, but a philosophy to interpret the history that unfolded around him. Tragic Coleridge explores the tragic vision of existence that Coleridge derived from Classical drama, Shakespeare, Milton and contemporary German thought. Coleridge viewed the hardships of the Romantic period, like the catastrophes of Greek tragedy, as stages in a process of humanity’s overall purification. Offering new readings of canonical poems, as well as neglected plays and critical works, Chris Murray elaborates Coleridge’s tragic vision in relation to a range of thinkers, from Plato and Aristotle to George Steiner and Raymond Williams. He draws comparisons with the works of Blake, the Shelleys, and Keats to explore the factors that shaped Coleridge’s conception of tragedy, including the origins of sacrifice, developments in Classical scholarship, theories of inspiration and the author’s quest for civic status. With cycles of catastrophe and catharsis everywhere in his works, Coleridge depicted the world as a site of tragic purgation, and wrote himself into it as an embattled sage qualified to mediate the vicissitudes of his age.
