Silent Urns: Romanticism, Hellenism, Modernity
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungThe study of Greece as an icon of culture appears to be as old as Greece itself, as if its cultural significance had attained full maturity at birth. In Silent Urns, the author reveals how Greece attained such significance as the result of the attempt to reconcile individuality, freedom, history, and modernity in 18th-century aesthetics.
