This study deals with three poets from three different countries--Germany, France, and England--and therefore may be considered a dissertation in comparative literature. It examines the reflection of a complex philosophical concept in an aesthetic form--literature--and thereby involves the two distinct disciplines of philosophy and literature. The interdisciplinary emphasis of this dissertation represents a distinguishing aspect of the Inter-collegiate Program.
