Ruins and Empire: The Evolution of a Theme in Augustan and Romantic Literature

Voorkant
University of Pittsburgh Press, 1977 - 272 pagina's

One of the most common scenes in Augustan and Romantic literature is that of a writer confronting some emblem of change and loss, most often the remains of a vanished civilization or a desolate natural landscape. Ruins and Empire traces the ruin sentiment from its earliest classical and Renaissance expressions through English literature to its establishment as a dominant theme of early American art.
