    1. Michael Lowy and Robert Sayre aren't afraid to take the widest possible (political) view of Romanticism in this expansive and insightful book. Rather than construct a definition of Romanticism that seeks to eliminate the inherent contradictions of the term, which they describe as "simultaneously (or alternately) revolutionary and counterrevolutionary, realist and fantastic, retrograde and utopian, rebellious and melancholic, democratic and aristocratic, activist and contemplative, republican and [...]


    2. Michael Löwy and Robert Sayre engage in the much needed work of saving Romanticism from its conventional interpretation as an isolated subjectivism or proto-fascism and reassert its imminently revolutionary dimension. The authors characterize Romanticism as a Weltanschauung (world-view) that “represents a critique of modernity, that is, of modern capitalist civilization, in the name of values and ideals drawn from the past (the precapitalist, premodern past).” What distinguishes Romanticism [...]


    3. This is an extended review of this complex and at times difficult book.The authors of this book, Lowy and Sayre, are a pair of Frenchmen who have taken up the question of defining Romanticism and describing its ideological manifestations. These two academics venture into the arcane world of Romantic thought, tracing it from the late eighteenth century to the present. In the process, the duo believe they have pinpointed the essence of the Romantics that has eluded all other scholars to this point [...]


    4. Löwy ve Sayre, romantizmi burjuvazinin girdiği çıkmaz sokak olarak "kültürel" bir okumaya tabi tutuyorlar. Her ne kadar kuramı 68'e projekte etmeleri çok makul gelmese de Coleridge, Ruskin, Peguy, Ernst Bloch ve Christa Wolf gibi yazarlar üzerinden yaptıkları okumanın tartışmayı ilerleten bir boyutu olduğu söylenebilir. Marksizm ve romantizm arasındaki çetrefil ilişkinin resmi ise tartışmalarının siyasal boyutu yer yer muğlaklaştığı için tam olarak çizilemiyor.


    5. Much more interesting that expected. A rather ambitious survey of Romanticism and its role in social critique in the past and future. The final chapter on the contemporary use of Romanticism was the weakest though. It was a bit disappointing that they were unable to really engage more fully with some of the critiques and discussions of romanticism and the culture industry in alternative cultures today.


    6. Interesting to acquire a wide view of Romanticism , "kinds" of it and its connections with Capitalism since eighteenth century across different countries in Europe, as well as to understand its presence in Literature, Philosophy, History and Art.
