"Afterword: Body, Number, Rank, Measure: Romantic Reckonings" "Romantic Number(s) Set 2"

McLane’s essay responds to the prompts offered by Savarese, Earle, and Broglio in their inquiries into “Romantic Number.” She notes a productive oscillation between quantitative and qualitative accountings—between the uncountable “mass” in Broglio and “mere countability” (to quote Earle) in Earle and Savarese. Teasing out the implications of their work for a discourse on measure, she invokes recent work on precarity and the common.
