Walter Benjamin and Romanticism explores the relationship between Walter Benjamin's literary and philosophical work and the tradition of German Romanticism, as well as Holderlin and Goethe. Through a detailed and scholarly analysis of the major texts, the book explores the endurance of Benjamin's relationship to Romanticism, the residual presence of Romantic Goethean and Holderlinian motifs in Benjamin's subsequent writings and how Benjamin's understanding of the relationship between criticism and Romanticism can still play a vital role in contemporary philosophical and literary practice. Contributors: Andrew Benjamin, Josh Cohen, David Ferris, Beatrice Hanssen, Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe, Charlie Louth, Bettine Menke, Winfried Menninghaus, Anthony Phelan, Sigrid Weigel

Review:

"From beginning to end Walter Benjamin engages in an intimate debate with the origin and legacy of German romanticism. This is the first volume in any language that has given this dense and difficult topic its due and will prove to be a valuable resource for anyone interested in the complex shape of Benjamin's thought."—Peter Fenves, Northwestern Universitymuslim

“The essays collected here will doubtless prove invaluable for those interested in tracing the origins of social theory, literary criticism, and philosophical reflection on language, translation, and the nature of art. Given Benjamin’s steadily increasing importance to these and other related fields of humanist inquiry, this book cannot and should not be overlooked.“ —Choice (CHOICE)

'It is true to say that the theme of Romanticism is central to a great deal of work on Benjamin today and this volume successfully shows the depth and relevance of that work, not only for Benjamin scholars, but also for anyone researching the philosophical, cultural and literary links between Romanticism and the present.'
'The historical and biographical detail is not presented in a dry and overly scholarly fashion, but with a feeling of excitement and respect for an extraordinary text.'

'Due praise must also go to the editors for arranging the collection in such a way that the essays can often be seen to follow on from one another; developing themes, motifs and subtly shifting focus and varying interpretations.'

Volume 37, No. 1 (Ewan Porter)
