0.00 CHF tax incl.

Reparative Realism shows how the analysis of melancholy feeling in the pre-Romantic novel fostered the development of a realist aesthetic. The weakening of religious and cultural norms in the age of Enlightenment allowed the writer greater freedom, but it also generated an anxious sense of loss (often by the death of a love : Prévost, Rousseau, Constant, Staël...). It is a psychological process, a symbolic transaction between writer and readers, a dynamicc of literary which generate a fictional world whose richness discloses the reparative potential within modernity itself.
