This exploration of Romantic depictions of memory as a faculty of body as well as of mind analyzes representations of remembrance in Jena Romantic texts. When these texts pose questions about memory's employment and depiction in art - about the aestheticization of recollection - they reveal serious doubt about the explanatory ability of the philosophical, psychological and aesthetic discourses against which Romantic, and modern, thought is constructed.
