Il sogno e la notte romantica. Su Albert Béguin PDF Print Email

Silvia Maria Esposito


The essay proposes an analysis of Albert Béguin’s work «L’âme romantique et le rêve». In the essay we try to clarify Beguin’s theories about the essence of Romantics’ existential pursuit, from his personal journey through the works and biographical occurrences of German preromantic and romantic authors, including Hölderlin, Novalis, Brentano, Hoffmann. According to Béguin, some of the achievements reached by these poets could be found also in French literature of XIX and XX century. The focal point of this connection is the  symbolic meaning of dream, considered as an emblematic experience of free detachment from the sterile dimension of reality, as a world specifically assigned to imagination, and a journey through the obscure lands of unconscious.
