Book Description:

Irony’s Antics marks a major intervention into the underexplored role of the comic in German letters. At the book’s heart is the relationship between the comic and irony. Weitzman argues that in the early twentieth century, irony, a key figure for the German Romantics, reemerged from its relegation to “nonsense” in a way that both rethought Romantic irony and dramatically extended its reach.
