Johann Peter Uz and German Anacreonticism: The Emancipation of the Aesthetic

by Newell E Warde | 31 December 1978
PAPERBACK
From the very beginning of his career as a poet, Uz regarded his early Anacreontic works as a transitory phase, a preparation for the higher metaphysical ode that became his forte in the 1750's. He hoped the Anacreonticism of the 1740's would be the first bold step on the way to a radical renewal of the German lyric in the spirit of Baumgarten's aesthetic theory. This rehabilitated lyric was ultimately to reassert its traditional function as an aesthetic teacher in the service of human emancipation.
