The Great Drama: Germany and the French Revolution.
Revolution did not spread to Germany from France at the end of the 18th century, yet the German and other European states were forced to come to terms with the principles of the French Revolution such as political and legal freedoms and national unity. Germany was affected by the French Revolution particularly by the reactions of German intellectuals of the time, including Goethe, Kant, and Hegel. The writings of Germans who traveled in France during the Revolution; the effect the Revolution had on political discourse and philosophical ideas; and the great German classicism and romanticism works of art are discussed. Over 30 photographs appear in this volume, and a selected 10-item bibliography of German resources also is included. (DB)
