Die alltägliche Romantik
The Romance of Everyday Life: The Familiar and Fantastic, the Lifeworld, and Art

Gewöhnliches und Phantastisches, Lebenswelt und Kunst

Edited by: Walter Pape
In collaboration with: Roswitha Burwick

Examining the role of everyday life for art and in art opens a new perspective on the Romantic era’s supposed struggle against the banalization of art. According to Pierre Bourdieu, everyday life and art face each other like the sacred and the profane. This volume examines the “lifeworld” and art, craft and conviviality, letters and the experiences of war, illness and food, as literary and artistic themes as realities of everyday life.
