Front cover is illustrated. Preface and translation by Cargill Sprietsma. In the Preamble the author writes: "In a general way . we know what romanticism is. The embarrassment begins when we are obliged to give a precise definition of this movement of the modern spirit, to tell in exact terms what the essence of it is, what novelty it brought us. I have given more than twenty years of study to penetrate this mystery, and it is the result of this study that I shall offer my readers, with as much clearness as possible". Contents include: How is the Human Spirit Disposed; The Courtly and Romance Conception of Life; From Romance to Romanticism -- Naturism; The Ramifications of Romantic Mysticism; Passional Romanticism; Democratic and Social Romanticism; etc. Bookseller Inventory # 3885
