  Romantic music - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Romantic music is related to Romantic movements in literature, art, and philosophy, though the conventional periods used in musicology are now very different from their counterparts in the other arts, which define "romantic" as running from the 1780s to the 1840s.
Romantic composers were aided by improvements in technology, which provided significant changes in the language of music, ranging from an increase in the range and power of the piano to improvements in the sound and reach of the symphony orchestra.
In literature, the Romantic period is often said to begin in the 1770s or 1780s with a movement known as "storm and struggle" in Germany.

 Romanticism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In English literature, Coleridge and Wordsworth were the true architects of the Romantic movement, beginning with their Lyrical Ballads (1798), but the revival of 'romance' in this narrower sense was preceded by a cult of Sensibility.
While these precursors partly explain the Romantic fascination with the Middle Ages, the pleasures of stressful emotions, and the thrill derived from wilfulness, the actual expression of the Romantic movement itself corresponded to the sense of rapid, dynamic social change that culminated in the French Revolution and the Napoleonic era.
Early Romantic nationalism was strongly inspired by Rousseau, and by the ideas of Johann Gottfried von Herder, who in 1784 argued that the geography formed the natural economy of a people, and shaped their customs and society.

 The Norton Anthology of English Literature: The Romantic Age: review: Summary
Romantic poets presented a theory of poetry in direct opposition to representative eighteenth-century theories of poetry as imitative of human life and nature by suggesting that poetic inspiration was located not outside in nature, but inside the poet's mind, in a "spontaneous" emotional response.
Attendant upon the increased profitability of literature was the growth of the periodical industry and the consequent added importance of the essay as a literary and critical form.
Romantic poets and writers would not have considered themselves similar and many of the writers considered canonical today were not popular until later in their careers or after their deaths.

 The Norton Anthology of English Literature: The Romantic Age: Topic 4: Overview
At first glance, Romantic literature may seem to be divided between the natural settings of sheep fields in the southwest of England or the Lake District and the unnatural settings of medieval castles that are, for all their remoteness from present-day reality, always Christian and at least European, if not always British.
Orientalism, via the literature and art of the time, was increasingly in the air (as well as the texts) in both London and the British countryside.
Romantic Orientalism continues to develop into the nineteenth century, paralleling another component of Romanticism already presented in the Norton Web sites, "Literary Gothicism." Two of the authors here — Clara Reeve and William Beckford — are important figures in the history of both movements.

 Introduction to the Romantic Period   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The difference between literature of the 18th Century and that of the early 19th Century is every bit as marked as that between Gainsborough and Turner, though it may be slightly more difficult to spot at first glance.
Romantic authors and thinkers seized upon this idea, along with the idea of throwing off the stodgy, aristocratic forms that had become popular in the 18th Century (look at the clothes worn by the subjects of Gainsborough's paintings, for example).
We use this year as a starting point for the Romantic Period in English literature because it was the year in which a collection of poems was published that would serve as a major turning point.

In Lyrical Ballads (1798 and 1800), a watershed in literary history, William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge presented and illustrated a liberating aesthetic: poetry should express, in genuine language, experience as filtered through personal emotion and imagination; the truest experience was to be found in nature.
Lord Byron was the prototypical romantic hero, the envy and scandal of the age.
Minor romantic poets include Robert Southey —best-remembered today for his story “Goldilocks and the Three Bears” —Leigh Hunt, Thomas Moore, and Walter Savage Landor.

 EH 558: Studies in Romantic Literature   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
English literature of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries; emphasis on Blake, William and Dorothy Wordsworth, Coleridge, Byron, Mary and Percy Shelley, and Keats; writers such as Godwin, Wollstonecraft, Burke, Paine, Barbauld, Smith, Hemans, Hazlitt, Hunt, and Clare also featured.
Although they are exceptionally important for twentieth-century culture, the so-called Romantic writers, with the exception of Byron, were actually rather minor figures in their own time.
By examining the Romantics in the context of their time, we will get a better sense of who they were, where they fit in with their own culture, and why they have become so important for our culture.

This concise Broadview anthology of primary source materials is unique in its focus on Romantic literature and the ways in which the period itself was characterized by wide-ranging, self-conscious debates about the meaning of literature.
These debates posed fundamental questions about the very nature of literature as a cultural phenomenon, the extent and role of the reading public, literature's relation to the sciences and the aesthetic, the influence of contemporary commercial pressures, and the impact of perceived excesses in consumer fashions.

 The Norton Anthology of English Literature: The Romantic Age: Topic 2: Overview
In the context of British Romanticism, "Literary Gothicism" is a type of imitation medievalism.
When it was launched in the later eighteenth century, Gothicism featured accounts of terrifying experiences in ancient castles — experiences connected with subterranean dungeons, secret passageways, flickering lamps, screams, moans, bloody hands, ghosts, graveyards, and the rest.
The Gothic revival, which appeared in English gardens and architecture before it got into literature, was the work of a handful of visionaries, the most important of whom was Horace Walpole (1717–1797), novelist, letter writer, and son of the prime minister Sir Robert Walpole.

Literature as personal therapy was nothing new to the Romantics, but Andersen stands out by burying his very adult neuroses in the innocence of fairy tales.
Particularly susceptible to such idealized misreadings have been the Romantics of the 19th century such as the German ETA Hoffmann, Andersen's literary hero, and our own Edgar Allen Poe, also influenced by Hoffmann.
Romantic literature, and its subgenre of gothic horror, not only reveled in the grotesque and macabre, but also struggled with multiple selves, personality disorder and possibly undiagnosed dementia.

 The Public and Private Spheres in Romantic Literature
Middle-and upper-class women for the first time in the eighteenth century were identified by men and male-created ideologies almost exclusively with the home and the realm of feeling passion, and emotion; while the male appropriated to his natural sphere reason and the powers of the analytical mind.
Consequently, the literature of male writers remained within the realm of rationality, structure, logic, and politics.
Likewise, the literature of women writers came to be associated with emotion, family, fanciful passion and social life.

 Romantic Canons: A Bibliography
Guillory argues convincingly that the emergence of an English vernacular canon coincides with the constitution of literature as an object (x-xi, 87) which occurs at "the moment of the canon's institutionalization" (87), "the moment at which the vernacular English canon enters the school system as a literary curriculum in competition with the classical curriculum" (86).
In this chapter, I argue that distinctive differences between miscellaneous collections of poetry and anthologies, published in their modern form for the first time during the early 19th century, reveal that canonizing began during the romantic era, and that it is an activity structurally dependent upon the exclusion of women poets.
The argument that the notions of canonicity and literary period begin during the Romantic Era really requires a notion of periodicity: it requires claiming, by a strange logic, that the notion of periods as originary originated in a period.
