Student or Learner
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.
I dont understand what you are asking for...sorry
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.
