Helfer (German, U. of Utah) examines the notion of Darstellung in its own discursive context, tracing the term's genealogy from its inception in Kant's Critiques through Fichte's definition of the subject as Darstellung , to the poetic theory and praxis of the Jena Romantics. She presents readings of major texts of Idealism and Romanticism in light of the Darstellung problematic, analyzing works including Novalis' Hymns to the Night and Kleist's essay On the Marionette Theater .
