From Paris to Pompeii

French Romanticism and the Cultural Politics of Archaeology

From Paris to Pompeii

In the early nineteenth century, as amateur archaeologists excavated Pompeii, Egypt, Assyria, and the first prehistoric sites, a myth arose of archaeology as a magical science capable of unearthing and reconstructing worlds thought to be irretrievably lost. This timely myth provided an urgent antidote to the French anxiety of amnesia that undermined faith in progress, and it armed writers from Chateaubriand and Hugo to Michelet and Renan with the intellectual tools needed to affirm the indestructible character of the past. From Paris to Pompeii reveals how the nascent science of archaeology lay at the core of the romantic experience of history and shaped the way historians, novelists, artists, and the public at large sought to cope with the relentless change that relegated every new present to history. In postrevolutionary France, the widespread desire to claim that no being, city, culture, or language was ever definitively erased ran much deeper than mere nostalgic and reactionary impulses. Göran Blix contends that this desire was the cornerstone of the substitution of a weak secular form of immortality for the lost certainties of the Christian afterlife. Taking the iconic city of Pompeii as its central example, and ranging widely across French romantic culture, this book examines the formation of a modern archaeological gaze and analyzes its historical ontology, rhetoric of retrieval, and secular theology of memory, before turning to its broader political implications.

The Urban Poor in the Cries of London

Images of the Outcast

This study offers a survey of the changing depiction of the denizens of London's streets-mechanic preachers, prostitutes, milkmaids, tinkers, beggars, and all manner of hawkers-as these were represented in Cries produced between 1580 and 1900. It draws on the history of art, literature, and society to analyse the meaning of the Cries in the culture of London over three centuries, and studies Cries as a genre with its own self-sustaining life - the life of art - but also reads the genre in a social and cultural historical context.
