  Romantic music - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The era of Romantic music is defined as the period of European classical music that runs roughly from the early 1800s to the first decade of the 20th century, as well as music written according to the norms and styles of that period.
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.

 Romanticism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
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.
In the 20th Century Russian-American writer Ayn Rand called herself a romantic, and thought she might be a 'bridge' from the romantic era to an eventual esthetic rebirth of the movement.
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.

 Romanticism   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
It is one of the curiosities of literary history that the strongholds of the Romantic Movement were England and Germany, not the countries of the romance languages themselves.
The early Romantic period thus coincides with what is often called the "age of revolutions"--including, of course, the American (1776) and the French (1789) revolutions--an age of upheavals in political, economic, and social traditions, the age which witnessed the initial transformations of the Industrial Revolution.
In style, the Romantics preferred boldness over the preceding age's desire for restraint, maximum suggestiveness over the neoclassical ideal of clarity, free experimentation over the "rules" of composition, genre, and decorum, and they promoted the conception of the artist as "inspired" creator over that of the artist as "maker" or technical master.

 Toward a Definition of Romanticism   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The term Romantic as a designation for a school of literature opposed to the Classic was first used by the German critic Karl Wilhelm Friedrich von Schlegel (1772-1829) at the beginning of the 19th century.
If the Romantic often sees his enemy in the successful bourgeois, the Philistine with a vested interest in social stability, political revolution is not always his goal.
His admiration for the natural, the organic, which in art leads to the overthrow of the Classical rules and the development of a unique form for each work, in politics may lead him to subordinate the individual to the state and insist that the needs of the whole govern the activities of the parts.

Two of the earliest romantic (or quasi-erotic) screen couples in the silent era were the seductively-beautiful, beguiling and bewitching Greta Garbo and her handsome screen counterpart John Gilbert, two MGM stars who first appeared together in Flesh and the Devil (1927) with three artistically-lit love scenes.
The romantic teaming of Gilbert and Garbo, and the vampishness of Theda Bara was replaced by the arrival of new, sexy and romantic lead superstars at MGM in the 1930s, typified by Clark Gable and Joan Crawford.

 Romanticism in art, European and American
The word came to be associated with the emerging taste for wild scenery, "sublime" prospects, and ruins, a tendency reflected in the increasing emphasis in aesthetic theory on the sublime as opposed to the beautiful.
Its greatest exponent, and the greatest German Romantic painter, was Caspar David Friedrich, whose meditative landscapes, painted in a lucid and meticulous style, hover between a subtle mystical feeling and a sense of melancholy, solitude, and estrangement.
His Romantic pessimism is most directly expressed in Polar Sea (1824); the remains of a wrecked ship are barely visible beneath a pyramid of ice slabs that seems a monument to the triumph of nature over human aspiration.

 Romantic Canons: A Bibliography
Curran explains the veritable "explosion" of publications of original poetry during the Romantic era as inspired by a new knowledge of poetic history and a desire "[t]o be 'among the English Poets'" (221): "For the first time there was an actual history not of literature per se, but of poetry in English.
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.
