Current Youth Unrest: The Image of French Romanticism between 1800 and 1850.
Seward, John Wesley, Jr.
This study analyzes the causes, philosophies, goals, psychologies, and mechanisms of current youth movements in comparison with the Romantic movements in France. Commentary is focused on: the prerevolutionary background history, revolution, Napoleon, post-Napoleonic France, romantic philosophy, French Romanticism, Chateaubriand, Lamartine, Hugo, revolt of youth, American universities, and Cornell University. The historical analogy results in an evaluation of the effects of current youth agitation on social, political, and academic structures. A bibliography is provided. (Author/RL)
