Readings in Romanticism and Architecture
Let me simply state by way of introducing my essay to the reader that in spite of the somewhat disparate personal and practical goals of this research, I hope that I have succeeded in producing a work that is informative and engaging in its own right. My decision to investigate Romanticism and Architecture was directed toward two ends. One, to arrive at an understanding of some facet of architecture that would appeal to a literary background. The other, to find a current in architectural thought related to my own, and thereby to convince myself that it is not illusory to expect from architecture all that I do, or at least to begin to get a sense of what I rightly can expect.
