The German Department is happy to announce a new book publication from Emeritus Ted Ziolkowski

Book cover of Stages of European Romanticism

Because of Romanticism’s vast scope, most treatments have restricted themselves to single countries or to specific forms, notably literature, art, or music. This book takes a wider view by considering in each of six chapters representative examples of works – from across Europe and across a range of the arts – that were created in a single year. This approach by “stages” makes it possible to determine characteristics of six stages of Romanticism in its historical and intellectual context and to note the conspicuous differences between these stages as European Romanticism developed.
