Die romantische Stimmung: Kennzeichen der populären Schriftsteller

  • This paper intends to briefly analyze the features of the popular writers of the 19th century. This is a period, in which the literary manifestations may be regarded under extremes: the interest lies primarily on the syncretism of literary currents and movements, among which worth mentioning is the “other” Romanticism, i.e. a decorative form of Romanticism. A short presentation of some successful writers of the 19th century, who could be considered mass literature authors, allows one to sketch the portrait of the typical mass literature author and subsequently of the typical mass literature reader, which should be understood under the cultural and social circumstances of that specific period. The stylistic and thematic similarities among these authors may be extrapolated to such an extent that one may conclude the Romantic mood (here one should understand this “other” Romanticism) is indeed a characteristic of the mass literature authors of the 19th century.
