GENT 11/411: Reaction and Revolution (1775–1815)

The course studies the causes, events, central figures, and consequences of the French Revolution and the Napoleonic age, examining some of the most important ideological bases and expressions of the turbulent age in philosophy, literature, and visual culture, including such figures as Rousseau, Kant, Wordsworth, Goethe, Goya and Beethoven. The Romantic Movement ties together both the political and cultural events of the period.
