Description
In this "splendidly pithy and provocative introduction to the culture of Romanticism" (Sunday Times, London), modern European history scholar Tim Blanning argues that the "Romantic Revolution" was every bit as significant as its far noisier contemporaries, the American, French, and Industrial revolutions. A rebellion against the rationality of the Enlightenment, rejecting "the Academy" in favor of public opinion, Romanticism was a profound shift in expression that altered the arts and ushered in modernity, even as it championed a return to the intuitive and the primitive. From the new notion of "sex appeal" in such figures as Paganini, Liszt, and Byron to the celebration of accessible storytelling in the novels of Walter Scott, The Romantic Revolution unearths the origins of ideas now commonplace in our culture.
