A Modest Apologia For Romanticism

John T. Netland

Romanticism has long courted suspicion. Beyond the longstanding charges of theological heterodoxy, Romanticism has recently been criticized by Christian scholars on epistemological and aesthetic grounds and has become a foil against which to define a more properly Christian aesthetic. Focusing on the Romanticism of William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge, John Netland questions such assessments and challenges the secularized paradigms under which their Romanticism has frequently been defined. Mr. Netland is assistant professor of English at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
