Romantic Critics of Political Economy

Mortensen, Anders LU (2007) In Money and Culture
Abstract
The paper deals with problems and examples from my work in progress, entitled Poetic versus economic value, which contains a number of studies of economic criticism in Romanticist and Modernist literature. Here I am focussing on a certain aspect of this discourse of conflicting values, namely, to what extent the antimonetary Romanticism directly confronts the doctrines of Political Economy, the discourse of Adam Smith and his followers. This is carried out by discussing a number of passages from Coleridge, Carlyle, Dickens, Goethe, and Adam Müller, and their use of a rhetorical construction I call the trope of mutually excluding values.
