Hegel and Lukács share with the Romantics the view that the fundamental difference between the (heroic) epic and the novel is the presence or absence respectively of a common, collective understanding of the world; or, as they thought of it, of the meaningful totality of existence. Hegel’s aesthetics can be regarded as a continuation, and by the same token a refutation, of the Romantic view of art as the highest form of attaining the totality of being, the Absolute. The function of art, which is to represent the Absolute symbolically in perceivable form, becomes in Modernity more and more difficult to fulfil.
