Free Download Frank Kermode, "Romantic Image"
English | 2001 | pages: 224 | ISBN: 0415261872, 0415261864 | EPUB | 2,0 mb
For the past four decades Frank Kermode, critic and writer, has steadily established himself as one of the most brilliant minds of his generation. Questioning the public’s harsh perception of ‘the artist’, Kermode at the same time gently pokes fun at artists’ own, often inflated, self-image. He identifies what has become one of the defining characteristics of the Romantic tradition – the artist in isolation and the emerging power of the imagination. Back in print after an absence of over a decade, The Romantic Image is quintessential Kermode. Enlightenment has seldom been so enjoyable!

New Critical Nostalgia Romantic Lyric and the Crisis of Academic Life


Free Download Christopher Rovee, "New Critical Nostalgia: Romantic Lyric and the Crisis of Academic Life "
English | ISBN: 1531505120 | 2024 | 272 pages | EPUB, PDF | 10 MB + 10 MB
New Critical Nostalgia weighs the future of literary study by reassessing its past. It tracks today’s impassioned debates about method back to the discipline’s early professional era, when an unprecedented makeover of American higher education with far-reaching social consequences resulted in what we might call our first crisis of academic life. Rovee probes literary study’s nostalgic attachments to this past, by recasting an essential episode in the historiography of English―the vigorous rejection of romanticism by American New Critics―in the new light of the American university’s tectonic growth. In the process, he demonstrates literary study’s profound investment in romanticism and reveals the romantic lyric’s special affect, nostalgia, as having been part of English’s professional identity all along.
