PB Shelley once wrote that 'poets are the unacknowledged legislators of the world', but can the creative works of poets, artists, musicians and novelists tell us anything about the origins and consequences of significant events in European history? This topic investigates the links between culture and history during Europe's long nineteenth century. It studies significant literary and artistic works against the backdrop of events such as the French revolution, the revolutions of 1848, industrialisation, the political emancipation of Jews and women, the Franco-Prussian war, the rise of socialism and the First World War.
