    The love for nature in the Romantic poetry

    Hello, how are you?

    Could you please help me finding a little information about the poets' love for nature in the Romantic era?

    I have the characteristics of the Romantic poetry but unfortunately I could't find more information about their love for the nature.

    thank you

    Re: The love for nature in the Romantic poetry

    The Romanticism movement rejected the scientific interpretation of nature.
    Here is a good quote:

    "Romance and novel paint beauty in colors more charming than nature, and describe a happiness that humans never taste. How deceptive and destructive are those pictures of consummate bliss!"
    -Oliver Goldsmith

    Smile Re: The love for nature in the Romantic poetry

    The root idea of romanticism is freedom and revolt. Theodore Watts-Dunton has charactrised it as " the renascence of the feeling of wonder in poetry and art." The Spirit of this Age created the lyric of the Romantic Revival, and expressed itsef through that unparalled galaxy,--Burns, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Byron, Shelley and Keats. In Burns and Wordsworth particularly, poetry became humanity's inheritance. Coleridge spanned the gap between reality and the fantastic; Shelley sang untiringly of the triumph of Love and Liberty ; and Keats of the triumph of Beauty.
    In fine, they discarded the Rainbow of the sky, and fancied for the Butterfly which was at hand.

    If this is not your original writing, you need to state your source.
    (Besides the OP will need it).
