Interrogating Modernity: Hermann Broch's Post-Romanticism

Forum for World Literature Studies. 2017. Vol. 9. No. 2. P. 186-204.

The present article makes an original and wide-ranging contribution to scholarship by examining, for the first time comprehensively and in the context of what the author defines as the "post-romantic syndrome," Hermann Broch's position vis-à-vis Romanticism. The focus is on Broch's trilogy The Sleepwalkers, but the article also considers the relevant essays on Hofmannsthal, on kitsch, and on myth and late style.
