Romanticism at the end of history by Jerome Christensen( )

24 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 1,720 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Romanticism at the End of History Jerome Christensen chooses as his points of departure the dates 1798, 1802, and 1815 - times of war, truce, and peace - to reconsider how English Romantic writers defined their relationship to radical social and political changes that seemed answerable to no author and directed to no clear goal." "Opposing the prevailing attitude that Romanticism is an extended exercise in bad faith to be condemned for its denial of the facts of social injustice, Christensen shows that the ethic capably imagined by the Romantics is the tool, not just the object, of critique. In a revisionary account of the way first-generation Romantics responded to the crisis of revolution and war, he identifies the emergence of an anthropological imagination that conceived of poetry as the notation of fugitive differences that escaped the impasse of England versus France, friend versus foe. He concludes that, in practice, Romanticism matters because it promotes and performs "an ethics of imaginative, collaborative work." In the book's final chapter, Christensen applies this idea of Romantic ethics to modern-day academia, prompting a reconsideration of how universities ought to approach the study of the humanities in a time of rapid technological innovation and dislocating social change."--Jacket
America's corporate art : the studio authorship of Hollywood motion pictures by Jerome Christensen( )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 1,087 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contrary to theories of single person authorship, America's Corporate Art argues that the corporate studio is the author of Hollywood motion pictures, both during the classical era of the studio system and beyond, when studios became players in global dramas staged by massive entertainment conglomerates. Hollywood movies are examples of a commodity that, until the digital age, was rare: a self-advertising artifact that markets the studio's brand in the very act of consumption. The book covers the history of corporate authorship through the antithetical visions of two of the most dominant Hollyw
Lord Byron's strength : romantic writing and commercial society by Jerome Christensen( Book )

13 editions published between 1992 and 1995 in English and held by 595 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

According to Jerome Christensen, literary histories of British Romanticism have dealt inadequately with Byron's "lordship"--His singularity as a phenomenal literary success and as the last and greatest aristocratic poet in the language. At first, Byron does not want a poetic career. Then, entrapped by his extraordinary success, he gets one. And once Byron has a career, he ruins it--not by his unsavory sexual practices and political grandstanding, but by publishing his greatest poem. The first extended study of the career and persona of the most celebrated poet of the nineteenth century, Lord Byron's Strength draws on contemporary literary, political, and social theory not only to revise our understanding of Byron but also to reexamine the romanticism of Coleridge, Wordsworth, Scott, Hazlitt, and Shelley
