The romantic era in England and Germany saw a sudden renewal of prophetic modes of writing. Biblical prophecy and classical oracle once again became viable models for poetry and even for journalistic prose. After surveying 18th-century biblical hermeneutics, as well as numerous instances of prophetic eruption in Romantic poetry, the book culminates in close readings of works by Blake, Hölderlin, and Coleridge.
