Johann Nikolas Böhl von Faber was a Hispanist and Germanist at a time when European cultural ideology was evolving from Enlightenment thought toward the new Romantic aesthetic. This book outlines and evaluates his considerable and crucial contribution to the development of European Romanticism in Spain as well as his role as a pivotal figure in nineteenth-century European letters. The first full-length treatment of von Faber’s life and work in its entirety, A German Romantic in Spain fills a significant gap in our appreciation and knowledge of Spanish Romantic thought.
