The Trivialliteratur of the end of the eighteenth Century is an observatory which is effective for focusing on the liminal space in which the concept of poetry and the vision of the world and of man which were typical of the Age of Enlightenment live together with the premonitory signs of romantic sensitivity. Interest in ancient Egypt is also an aspect of eighteenth-Century culture in which the tensions between the rationalist point of view, typical of the classical intellectuals like Winckelmann and Herder, and the Egyptosophic view, cultivated especially by the masonic world, give rise to dialectics between Aufklärung and Schwärmerei, which marks the threshold between Spätaufklärung and Frühromantik. Considering both these aspects, the paper focuses on the novel 'Aylo und Dschadina oder die Pyramiden' of the Trivialautor Friedrich Eberhard Rambach, the Berlin school teacher of Tieck and Wackenroder, which is an interesting document showing the complexity of German culture and literature of the last decade of the eighteenth Century.
