Hermann Broch oder die Romantik

Extract



After the Romantic period, everyone is a Romantic, or, to be more precise, a Post-Romantic. Literature after Romanticism is involved in a constant, explicit or implicit, dialogue with Romanticism. This is especially true for literary modernism. Hermann Broch, for instance, makes a multitude of references to Romanticism in his poetological, essayistic, and literary oeuvre. His attitude towards this era meanders between attraction and distance, as can be seen in his trilogy of novels entitled ‘Die Schlafwandler’ (1931–1932). Looking mainly at its first part, a panorama of politics, culture, and society in Central Europe between 1888 and 1918, with the title ‘1888. Pasenow oder die Romantik’, it can be seen how Broch’s critical and ironic attitude towards Romanticism is closely connected to his concept of kitsch, bearing proof of transformations and transgressions in modernism with regard to the heritage of Romanticism.
