HONR 4945 A Romantic Reprise (Fall/Spring: 3 )
The purpose of this seminar is to offer the satisfaction of intellectual return by going back to books, paintings, music - above all, ideas - previously explored in the second half of sophomore year where our common subject of investigation is mature Romanticism. Accordingly, we will be looking again at some of the foundational 19th century artistic achievements. We will also be returning to earlier masterworks from the first three terms of the Cultural Tradition sequence to see how the Romantics reinterpreted them, and may explore how this Romantic way of seeing has continued in contemporary times.
