By Robert Mitchell
If the target of the Romantic circulation used to be not anything under to redefine the which means of existence itself, what position did experiments play during this flow? whereas previous scholarship has verified either the significance of technological know-how regularly and vitalism particularly, with reference to Romanticism no research has investigated what it intended for artists to scan and the way these experiments regarding their curiosity within the proposal of life.
Experimental Life attracts on techniques and ideas from modern technology reviews, presenting the idea that of experimental vitalism to teach either how Romantic authors appropriated the idea that of experimentation from the sciences and the impression in their appropriation on post-Romantic ideas of literature and art.
Robert Mitchell navigates complicated conceptual arenas reminiscent of community concept, present trade, paranoia, and biomedia and introduces new thoughts, akin to cryptogamia, chylopoietic discourse, trance-plantation, and the poetics of suspension. hence, Experimental Life is a wide-ranging summation and extension of the present nation of literary experiences, the historical past of technology, cultural critique, and theory.
