Set against the background of the initial liberal dawning the French Revolution seemed to herald, the disillusion that set in after its descent into terror, and the decades of warfare that followed, Christiansen draws on a wealth of scholarship ranging over many related aspects of music, architecture, and politics as he presents fresh perspectives on poetry and prose long defined narrowly as Romanticism.
