JOURNAL OF AUSTRIAN STUDIES 49:34 Doren Wohlleben and Paul Michael Lützeler, eds., Hermann Broch und die Romantik. Berlin: de Gruyter, 2014. 230 pp. Modernist author and polymath Hermann Broch has long confounded his reception. Scholarship has struggled with the dissonances in an oeuvre that asserts systematic consistency across such varied pursuits as literature, aesthetic theory, political science, sociology, and mass psychology. Over the last decades, this scholarship has increasingly confronted such "affirmative" readings critically, eschewing the presupposition of consistency in favor of a dynamic understanding of the thinker. One sees a continuation of this trend in Paul Michael Lützeler and Doren Wohlleben's Hermann Broch und die Romantik, the proceedings of the 2012 Munich symposium "Wertbilder: Auflösungsprozesse und Erlösungsutopien: Hermann Broch und die Romantik." This anthology deals with the author's fraught relationship with Romanticism as concept and historical movement, both of which he attacks while replicating many of their practices. As Lützeler and Wohlleben argue, while Broch's theoretical works assert "eine explizite Abgrenzung zur Romantik [ . . . ] so lassen sich in seinem literarischen Werk immer wieder implizite Anlehnungen an romantische Konzepte beobachten." Correspondingly, this anthology's contributions negotiate those dissonances, particularly Broch's antagonistic affinity with Early Romanticism's
