A Guide to Romantic Poetry in Germany

Miroslav John Hanak

This text is an introduction to and critical analysis of poems representative of Romanticism in Germany by authors ranging from Hölderlin to Lenau. The book provides unique insights into the concerns and themes of Romantic sensibility rarely offered to the English-speaking public. It is also an invaluable tool for students of literature on any level. The selection of poems analyzed is based on Hanak's English-version anthology, Romantic Poetry on the European Continent, published in 1983 by the University Press of America.
Contents: This book is an analysis of selected poems of the principal German Romantic poets. Since the English texts of the above-mentioned anthology are both faithful and poetic translations, their analysis in this Guide reflects clearly the qualities of the originals. The number of poems analyzed exceeds the average text selections.
