The introduction takes a point of departure from Walter Benjamin’s concept of the historical constellation, a concept which puts both historical terms—“contemporary” as well as “Romanticism”—in play as period designations and critical paradigms. The contemporaneity of Romanticism explored or addressed by the authors is not predicated on Romanticism’s unacknowledged historical or conceptual persistence. With reference to Agamben and Keats, the introduction develops the contemporaneity of Romanticism in relation to several questions: What is the unlived of the contemporary Romanticism? What has Romanticism’s singular untimeliness bequeathed to futurity?

Keywords:   Agamben, Benjamin, contemporary, Keats, Romanticism
