The seminar will examine the claims of the Romantic artists, with particular reference to the English context. Close attention will be paid to seminal essays by Wordsworth and Shelley, and key themes explored. These include: the artist as autonomous genius; the moral power of the imagination; the opposition to industrialism; the critique of popular culture; and hostility towards the public.

Week 1 – THE CIVILISING MISSION

The course will begin with an exploration of Schiller's idea of art as an agent of cultural restoration, with particular reference to the Letters on the Aesthetic Education of Man. Specific attention will be paid to the two central themes of the treatise – the relationship of art to politics, and of insight to action. Schiller's debt to Rousseau will be acknowledged, and his intellectual legacy examined.
