Lightbulb Free (DRM-free) Romantikkens verden [Danish Romanticism Era History Culture Overview]

Romantikkens verden: Natur, menneske, samfund, kunst og kultur (The World of Romanticism: Nature, man, society, art and culture) edited by Ole Høiris & Thomas Ledet, is a volume in the Verdensboger (World Books) series of Danish-language self-contained titles which provide a comprehensive introductory overview to cultural and historical periods, this installment covering the 18th-19th century Romantic Era (Wikipedia) which followed the Age of Enlightenment, free courtesy of the Aarhus University Press in Denmark.

This is their Danish-language Free Book of the Month selection for January. As before, this is a very substantial overview of the time period and movement, with plenty of essays devoted to various specialized topics about literature etc. from assorted countries both Nordic and otherwise, as well as the general interest introductory stuff, lavishly illustrated with period paintings, documents, and photographs. We've previously received the Renaissance & Enlightenment volumes of this series as freebies as well.

Currently free throughout January directly @ the university's dedicated promo page (DRM-free PDF available worldwide), and you can read more about the title on its regular catalogue page.

This is a ~48 meg file which you probably don't want to download on a device that has data limits.

Beskrivelse på dansk
Romantikken er en sammensat kulturhistorisk og åndshistorisk strømning, som brød frem i slutningen af 1700-tallet og kulminerede i den første tredjedel af 1800-tallet, men havde udløbere helt ind i det 20. århundrede. Ud over at formulere et særligt verdenssyn, der åbnede for en dyrkelse af folkelig fortid, for melankolsk livsførelse, dybe trængsler, anelser, splittelse og higen efter helhed og harmoni og meget andet, var den karakteriseret ved en kritisk reaktion mod to af den tids stærke strømninger: Den oplysningstid, som i den romantiske kritik ofte blev fremstillet som en kold, reduktionistisk, materialistisk rationalisme, og den endnu koldere materialistiske og rationalistiske modernitet. En ubehagelig fremtid, som romantikerne så trænge sig på med den fremvoksende industrialisering.

Givet er det, at romantikkens kosmologi og filosofi blev formuleret blandt tyske intellektuelle i sidste halvdel af 1700-tallet, og at strømningen i forskellig rytme og med varierende styrke spredte sig ud over Europa. Gennemslaget inden for faglige, videnskabelige og kunstneriske områder varierede dog meget, og påvirkningen af åndslivet var højst forskellig fra land til land. Denne bogs mere end 40 artikler - alle skrevet af forskere på det nye, store Aarhus Universitet - spreder sig derfor over hele perioden mellem sidste kvartal af 1700-tallet og begyndelsen af 1900-tallet og omhandler alt fra forskning i Frankenstein og ædle vilde over nationalisme og gymnastik til Florence Nightingale og onde hekse.

Just a reminder that this will probably be the last day to pick up the freebie, if you're interested.
