Product Description


"Haunted Museum is a groundbreaking, in-depth look at fantasies of Italy from the late eighteenth to the early twentieth centuries, focusing on a literary tradition Jonah Siegel terms the 'art romance'--the fantastic voyage south understood as the register of an ambivalent desire for art and a heightened experience of reality."--Julien Desrochers, Fabula

"Haunted Museum offers a wide-ranging and imaginatively wrought genealogy of narratives surrounding voyages to the South of culture by canonical European and Anglo-America authors, reaching from Goethe through Forster, Proust, Mann, and Freud."--Jennifer Scappettone, Modern Philology

From the Back Cover

"This is a remarkably incisive and suggestive work of criticism, which transfigures an outwardly familiar literary and cultural history. As Siegel brings home the importance of the 'art romance' to a great range of literary careers, from Goethe through James, Freud, Proust, and Mann, he also makes the genre seem a crucial force in the shaping of modern desire."--James Eli Adams, Cornell University

First Sentence
I DROP THIS FAMOUS poem of longing abruptly into my text in emulation of Goethe's own treatment of the song in Wilhelm Meister, where, when first encountered, it opens book 4 of that novel, with no indication of its source or of its audience. Read the first page
