Botero Camacho, Manuel José (2016) El viaje a América: el Romanticismo británico y el Romanticismo americano. [Thesis]

[thumbnail of T37875.pdf]


What the dissertation proposes is a reading of Romanticism through its symbols, through the elements that literally shape it and how they are repeated, transformed and reinterpreted according to their new environments; the thesis proposes a kind of semiotic, hermeneutic braid, to account for the evolution and literary influences of these symbols in America: a metaphorical corkscrew. It must be emphasized that this is, above all, an English dissertation and its main theme is British Romanticism, from its origins in the late eighteenth century. It́s not my intention to propose a thesis that exposes or discusses the Romantic Movement; that has been done already and, in some cases, quite unfortunately; but the fact is that the critical literature on the subject overflows the libraries. I do not care for a thesis that is limited to establish a relationship between the English Romantic movement and the movement in the United States or Latin American countries. Although it will be necessary to resort to certain philosophical approaches, I do not care pose a thesis that focuses on the philosophical Romanticism (such as the German one). Finally, I do not wish to propose a thesis that is dedicated to establish the implications of a political Romanticism as it was lived mainly in the Bolivarian countries...
