ROMANTIC THINGS: A TREE, A ROCK, A CLOUD. Mary Jacobus. University of Chicago Press, 2012. 232 pp. with 28 ills. 24 x 16 cm. LC 2012-3655 ISBN 9780226390666 In English.
Paperbound edition available Spring 2015 at $30.00 (ISBN 978-0-226-27134-7). Publisher's description: In Romantic Things, Mary Jacobus explores the world of objects and phenomena in nature as expressed in romantic poetry alongside the theme of sentience and sensory deprivation in literature and art. Jacobus discusses objects and attributes that test our perceptions and preoccupy both romantic poetry and modern philosophy. John Clare, John Constable, Rainer Maria Rilke, W. G. Sebald, and Gerhard Richter make appearances around the central figure of William Wordsworth as Jacobus explores trees, rocks, clouds, breath, sleep, deafness, and blindness in their work. While she thinks through these things, she is assisted by the writings of Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Jacques Derrida, and Jean-Luc Nancy.
