BeschreibungConsiders how science shaped notions of sexuality, reproduction, and gender in the Romantic period. This title explores the influence of contemporary aesthetics and biology on literary Romanticism. It reveals that ideas of sexuality during the Romantic era were much more fluid and undecided than they are often characterized in the scholarship.
