Walking and the French Romantics explores for the 1st time the connection among strolling and Romanticism in France. It maps this courting as topic and perform, no social historical past of pedestrian excursions in nineteenth-century France having been written. during this connection, the legacy of Rousseau and Senancour proves better than has been well-known, even with the pull of Paris and its mythical city flâneurs. the writer brings out the function of painters and of figures like Nodier, Didier and Dumas in encouraging writers to head (or think themselves) at the street and exhibits how and why pedestrian traveling turned well liked by authors within the past due 1830s. He discusses the impression of this way on significant Romantic writers corresponding to Nerval, Sand and Hugo. eventually he describes how jogging misplaced its specific cultural reference to Romanticism within the 1840s.

Example text

See also VIIIe and XVIIe, and Libres Méditations (ed. B. Le Gall), 158–159 (XVIe Méditation). Sainte-Beuve praised Oberman in the Revue de Paris of 22 January 1832 (34, 210–222). , II, 800, 887). See Béatrice Didier, ‘Nerval et Senancour, ou la nostalgie du XVIIIe siècle’, in Le Rêve et la vie. ‘Aurélia’, ‘ Sylvie’, ‘Les Chimères’ de Gérard de Nerval, Paris, SEDES, 1986, 5–15. See his satirical ‘Petit voyage romantique’ in L’Abeille, 4, 1821, 99–107. 37 This page intentionally left blank French Romanticism from Charles Nodier to George Sand Just how and why this lack of emphasis first occurred in spite of Senancour and Rousseau needs now to be more fully considered in an overview of the issue, from Nodier’s contribution in the earliest days to the final emergence of more positive patterns of thought and usage after 1837.

See Le Gall, L’Imaginaire chez Senancour, I, 42–51. Senancour seems to have made several more stays in Switzerland around 1793 before a final one in 1802. 5 Walking the forest was therefore a practice and an image which would continue to haunt him in a way that climbing hills would not, but it was the failure of his initial quest in the Alps that ultimately coloured his outlook and sent him back for some sort of consolation to the familiar paths of the woods. 7 In the Oberman of 1804 there are therefore few of the physically and morally satisfying excursions which Victor Hugo and George Sand were later to evoke.

Les Rayons et les ombres, dated October 183[7] (Poésies, I, 1011–1012). 65 In prose, it is also in 1837 that Hugo started to think of publishing accounts of his regular summer journeys and of including the long walks he had done that year along the dunes from Furnes to Dunkirk and across the Hâble d’Ault in the Somme, while Dumas for his part published chaotically between 1837 and 1841 the text of his Midi de la France which continues the celebration of travel on foot begun in his book on Switzerland: Heureusement qu’une course de quatre lieues de pays n’était pas de nature à nous effrayer; nous acceptions, au contraire, avec grand plaisir ces occasions de voir le terrain pied à pied; et n’eût été l’impossibilité de transporter avec nous le bagage nécessaire à un voyage d’un an, je crois même que nous n’eussions jamais adopté d’autre mode de locomotion.
