about

Ludwig Tieck (1773-1853) was a major figure in German Romanticism, a poet, playwright and novelist who was also an influential art and theatre critic, the editor of Kleist and Novalis, and responsible for bringing out the famous Schegel-Tieck translation of Shakespeare. This book has condenseda mass of material to make a readable but accurate and comprehensive literary biography, the first complete study of Tieck since 1935. Its aim is to convey, through the study of one man's works, the climate of Romanticism, and to trace its progress from being a movement of aesthetic protest and experiment to one of national awareness. The present book is an attempt to present the material in a form which makes it accessible to allGermanists, and to present Tieck's life and times in such as way as to illuminate a central phase in German and European literary history.English translations are provided of the German quotations.

Editorial Reviews

"The best biography of Tieck in any language....Will remain the standard life of Tieck for many years to come; and students of 19th-century literature and society, and of Anglo-German cultural relations in the age of Weltliteratur will ignore it at their peril."--Times Literary Supplement"Brings to his endeavor a prodigious familiarity with Tieck's life, his works, and with unpublished archival materials....Paulin's biography will certainly provide a major reference point in Tieck scholarship for some time."--Studies in Romanticism"Paulin's book is a major contribution to our understanding of the role played by Tieck in the Romantic Movement and in German literature and culture from the 1790s to the middle of the nineteenth century." --Journal of English and Germanic PhilologyPaulin's warts-and-all biography is a refreshing as it is thorough."--The Romantic Movement"Any school at which German literature of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries is taught will wish to have this book in its library....Both an authoritative biography and a major contribution to our understanding of the 'Goethezeit.'"--Treffpunkt
