Patel, Benbrahim 2 This site has taught me a lot about the Romantics and Romanticism. It gave me an overall better understanding on The Romantics,“It covers a range of developments in art, literature, music and philosophy, spanning the late 18th and early 19th centuries.” I also learned the major figures of Romanticism “When reference is made to Romantic verse, the poets who generally spring to mind are William Blake (1757-1827), William Wordsworth (1770-1850), Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834), George Gordon, 6th Lord Byron (1788-1824), Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822) and John Keats (1795-1821).” These important figures had a huge impact on society, “They were inspired by a desire for liberty, and they denounced the exploitation of the poor. There was an emphasis on the importance of the individual; a conviction that people should follow ideals rather than imposed conventions and rules.” The Romantics inspired a new age of individuality and soon even lead to the Enlightenment Era. It emphasized the importance of individuality, and people started to base their actions and decisions on personal ethics.

Patel, Benbrahim 3 Based on the information from this website I have learned much about romanticism, as well as influential people that took part in the artistic movement. Some influential people could “ include Friedrich Hölderlin, the early Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Jean-Paul, Novalis, Ludwig Tieck, A.W. and Friedrich Schlegel, Wilhelm Heinrich Wackenroder, and Friedrich Schelling, belonging to this first phase.” The period took place from the 18th throughout the 19th century. Romanticism was shown through many different forms, although primarily literature and art. Additionally, Romanticism focused on Individuality, Irrationalism, and emotion. Much of the pieces that had a romantic focus, valued nature and the beauty of it. Romanticism in literature was highly common and the primary focus of the pieces of literature was to exemplify Chivalry and Heroism.

Patel, Benbrahim 4 This site has opened me up further to the concept of Romanticism, as it has widely been interpreted differently. According to the site, “ it is true to say that romanticism flowered originally against a backdrop of violent revolution during a period of economic, political and social transition.” Romantic authors disregarded rationalism and pushed it away. In addition to literature, romantic ideas were presented through art as well. Many of these literary authors were rebellious and free-spirited which is what allowed them to be able to write with such passion and integrity. Additionally, Romanticism influenced much of political ideology. Overall I have learned that romanticism has been highly influential in the history of literature.
