Romanticism Comes of Age
'Romanticism Comes of Age' centers on the question; What is the creative imagination and in what way is it true? Owen Barfield insightfully explores the role of imagination in Romantic philosophy and literature, particularly in the work of Coleridge and of Goethe. Barfield also traces the evolving nature of the creative imagination from primordial times to the present, drawing on a wide array of examples including the language of ancient Greece, Dante's 'Commedia', and Shakespeare's 'Hamlet'. The book brilliantly demonstrates that the Romantic Movement's core elements and aspirations have "come of age" in anthroposophy, the spiritual science inaugurated by Rudolf Steiner.
