Description

Achim von Arnim's lyrical work has been barely acknowledged in the discussion of Arnim in particular and Romanticism in general. Yet a closer look at the peculiarities in Arnim's work reveals that in the field of poetry, he can also most certainly be considered a major figure of German Romanticism. Instead of functioning as a means of subjective self-expression, Arnim's poetry represents a kind of voyage of discovery to the core of the ego itself, a core which is being phenomenologically explored. Based on a selection of Arnim's poetic writings and poems, it is this phenomenology of the ego which is the focus of this study, and which places Arnim's poetry within a group of romantic poets including Novalis, Tieck, Brentano or Eichendorff.
