    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    Following a trajectory that begins with Goethe and extends through Emerson, Whitman, and Mann, this study reconstructs a neglected facet of modernity: the effort to create a “collective poetics.” The work examines both aspects of literary form and ways of thinking about society and politics.
