Riassunto: After Jena is the first scholarly work in English to set Goethes influential and controversial novel Elective Affinities squarely within the turbulent time in which it was written. Peter Schwartz explores the era of rapid modernization following Prussia's defeat at the battle of Jena-Auerstedt (1806) - a battle that permitted Napoleon French hegemony throughout continental Europe and to dissolve or reform the institutional structures of the German ancient regime. Adducing evidence from many spheres and applying the tools of several disciplines Schwartz persuasively shows how Elective Affinities reflects post-Jena changes in marriage, property and inheritance law and in the political role of the German nobility. He links questions of character, fate and sacrifice in the novel to modem problems of sovereignty and legitimacy and investigates how key scenes in the novel comment implicitly on Napoleon, Rousseau, the French Revolution, and the politics and aesthetics of the German Romantics. After Jena reveals the novel's ethical core to be a calculus of political legitimacy, and its aesthetics a means of conciliating tensions provoked by modernity's onrush. It will be of special interest to students of literature, history, philosophy, art history and aesthetics.
