Summary
"A Half-Century of Greatness paints a vivid and dramatic picture of the creative thought of mid- to late nineteenth century Europe and the influence of the unsuccessful revolutions of 1848. Frederic Ewen reveals often unexpected links between novelists, poets, and philosophers from England, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Russia, and Ukraine - especially Dickens, Carlyle, Mill, the Brontes, and George Eliot; Hegel, Strauss, Feuerbach, Marx, Engels, Wagner, and several German poets; the Hungarian poet Sandor Petofi; Gogol, Dostoevsky, Bakunin, and Herzen in Russia; and the great Ukrainian poet Shevchenko. Ewen goes on to trace the transition from Romanticism to Victorianism, or what he calls "the Victorian compromise" - the ascendancy of the middle class." "This is Ewen's last work, the long-lost companion to his Heroic Imagination. Together, these books present a panorama of the social, political, and artistic aspects of European Romanticism, especially foreshadowing and complementing recent work on the relation of Marxism to Romanticism. Anyone interested in what Lukacs called "Romantic anticapitalism," who appreciates such books as Marshall Berman's Adventures in Marxism (1999), Lowy and Sayre's Romanticism against the Tide of Modernity (2001), or E. P. Thompson's The Romantics (1997) will find the Ewen volumes a welcome addition." "The book was reconstructed and edited by Dr. Jeffrey Wollock from Ewen's final manuscript. It includes the author's own reference citations throughout, a reconstructed bibliography, and an updated "further reading" list."--BOOK JACKET
