The Rebirth of Romanticism: The Visionary Heritage of the Fantasy Known as Science Fiction (tentative title of book)

To examine the relationship between Romanticism and science fiction. Romanticism was the first literature to recognize that consciousness is a projection of ideas upon the work, and to dramatize the conflict which ensues when the self acts or reacts upon awareness of a condition which is both man's finitude and creative freedom. P.I. maintains that science fiction was contemporary with and an extension of Romanticism.
