Poetry, Art, and Science in the Age of Wonder

This wiki was developed and created by students enrolled in Crystal Lake's course, Poetry, Art, and Science in the Age of Wonder, in the Spring of 2011 at the Georgia Institute of Technology.

Here, you'll find a comprehensive list of texts and images that exemplify the Romantics' fascination with science as well as a list of scholarly sources that offer insight into the practice and discourse of Romantic science. You'll also find extensive feature articles authored by students in the course. These articles provide in-depth analysis of one branch or component of Romantic science. They also offer unique and compelling visualizations of data drawn from late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century texts.

Thank you for visiting!
