  CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Czech Literature   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-07)
Of all Slav literature, with the exception of the Bulgarian, the Czech is the oldest and, until the seventeenth century, was also the richest.
Tendencies of this kind found favour also in Bohemia, and because of their origin in Latin or Roman lands, literature of this period is commonly called romance, The deeds and adventures of the knights were extolled in song and poem after foreign models; the best of these was "Alexandreis", written by an unknown author.
Of all the branches of scientific Bohemian literature the theological is the richest.

 British Theory and Criticism: 3. Romantic Period and Early Nineteenth Century
Like Coleridge and Percy Bysshe Shelley in England, Schiller pointed to the division of labor, institutions, and knowledges that was gradually shattering all forms of the universal, the capacity of man and woman to grasp the totality of their own purposes and acts.
This perspective became the paradoxical foundation of the Romantic theorist's claim for "Culture," an attempt to reinstitute the shattered universals by means of literature, symbol, the aesthetic, and reimaginations of mind and self (Abrams; Williams).
Coleridge's theory formed yet another allegorical account of how literature, by means of criticism or symbolic interpretation, might restabilize the fractural, highly unstable relation of the British state to the social groups and classes of the early nineteenth century.

 Cardiff Corvey Articles: Database Project: The Flowers of Literature
Coverage of novels the Flowers of Literature was fairly substantial—there were, for example, notices of 28 novels contained in the volume for 1806—despite the fact that Blagdon’s introductory remarks often echo familiar critical discourse on the dubious moral and literary value of the genre.
The Flowers of Literature was published by the London firm of Benjamin Crosby and Co., which operated between 1794 and 1814, from Stationer’s Hall Court on Ludgate Hill and ‘near Paternoster Row’—establishing it firmly in the topographical centre of the London booktrade.
The object of this work is, the laudable one of bringing into contempt the ridiculous and disgusting tenets of modern philosophers, as they prevailed a few years ago, when their progress bid fair to overthrow, with the altar and the throne, the moral system of all civilized nations.

In this poem, the Tartar prince Kubla Khan, causes a "pleasure - dome" and "elaborate gardens" to be constructed in "Xanadu".

It is distressing to find, in a study of a major figure in German literature, no awareness that Diderot, Hamann, Herder, Schiller, Baader, and others treated hieroglyphics as a significant topic in the theory of language and aesthetics.

 4.7 Finnish literature
Lönnrot was under the influence of Homeric ideals and tried to forge the poems into a single epic, adding bits and pieces of his own and altering some parts to make them appear a whole, which they however never have been.
Nevertheless, its role to the development of Finnish literature, arts and identity can hardly be over-estimated, and having been translated to all major world languages and lots of minor ones, it is no doubt the most important contribution of Finland to world literature.

 A biography of Thomas De Quincey by H. S. Davies
The date suggests that he was a Romantic of the second generation, to be placed with Byron, Shelley and Keats; but in fact he was thirty-six sears old when he wrote the Confessions, and had been for the past twenty years an admirer and friend of Wordsworth and Coleridge.
Later in the year, he went up to Oxford, the poorer by the Exhibition which he might have had from Manchester Grammar School, and on an allowance which proved to be much too small.
In 1808, he sat for his final examination, wrote a few papers which are said to have been brilliant, and then fled, as abruptly and more inexplicably than he had fled from school Now, however, there was no question of returning home in disgrace.

 Ralph Dumain: "The Autodidact Project": "Irony" by Norman D. Knox
In the early eighteenth century, the omnipresence of French and English satiric literature brought the idea of irony, so called, out of the classroom into the intellectual marketplace; during the intervening twenty centuries it lived in, or on the edge of, rhetorical theory, the two chief fountains of which were Cicero and Quintilian.
Such irony, A. Schlegel said, was a defense against "overcharged one-sidedness in matters of fancy and feeling." He assumed that all intelligent people were relativists: by constant ironic qualification Shakespeare "makes a sort of secret understanding with.
In literature, as in life, they would reside in the comprehensiveness of the author’s activity: a perfected work might be "limited at every point," but in its inclusion of all contradictions it would be "without limitation and inexhaustible." (For authoritative discussions of and references to F. Schlegel’s scattered pronouncements, see Immerwahr, Wellek, and Muecke.)
