It is an example of a Romantic novel. It includes many Romantic features like nature, overflow of emotions, gothic elements, imagination, and individuality.

I opted for Childe Har-old’s Pilgrimage as an example because the protagonist in it, is the perfect ex-ample for the “Byronic hero”. This poem is semi-autobiographical, which is why the protagonist is found to be smart, handsome and moody, with little to no re-spect towards figures of authority. Another big author of the Romantic period is John Keats. He is the author of poems like ode to a Nightingale and Ode on a Grecian Urn, in which he makes use of all the big Romantic themes like Nature, the sublime, the ancient past, and of course emotions. Percy Bysshe Shelley whose most famous work Prometheus Unbound (1820) is a play that was written to be read, not performed.
By juxtaposing pastoral country scenes and the dreary, urban surroundings of the Industrial Revolution, the Romantic writers used themes to tell their readers important philosophical understanding.

In Lines Composed a Few Miles Above Tintern Abbey, William Wordsworth built the themes of the work around the emotions nature inspired in him. Wordsworth’s return to the valley of the River Wye made him realize all of what he had missed while
The romanticism is a literary movement that comes through all countries of Europe. The characteristics of Romanticism are clear in this poem since the poet resorted to the power of imagination to envision and to escape. Wordsworth used the natural setting to paint an original image that comes to life in the reader 's mind. By comparing himself to a lonely cloud, he combined natural and literary factors to depict the feeling of a personal experience and unleash the power of imagination to address the public. Moving forward into the next stanzas where we can also see how the poet gives the human qualities to the Daffodils’, which is the central symbol of the poem.
In The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, Coleridge focalizes on an allusion and an imagination on this poetry that create a superstition and the supernatural role; they play in an important role for symbolizing Christian imagery whereas there were many allusion are presented such as the ice; Albatross, which was been shot by the Mariner in the part I; the sea that was sinking the ship in part II; the corpses that rise on the ship in part V; and many others; those of them are all of the imagined vision that were taken as the base of action by Coleridge’s dreams. There was the union of deep emotion within a deep thought with the fine balance of truth in observing the allusion in the poem whereas the elements are the gift of spreading the depth and
The best-known love legends include those of Shakuntala and Dushyant and of Savitri and Satyavan, who were married couples. Their stories appear in the epic poem Mahabharata, ca. 400-300 BCE. Underlying these narratives are the twin themes of separation and longing—potential in the case of Savitri, and actual in the case of Shakuntala. It is set in land of great natural beauty, where the lord of love picks his victims with consummate ease, these stories celebrate the myriad aspects of the many-splendored emotion called
William Blake and Robert Burns Talked About Roses In any literary piece, rose can be regards as an archetypal symbol that is always associated with love. Two poets of Romantic Movement wrote a poem about rose; The Sick Rose by William Blake and A Red, Red Rose by Robert Burns. These poems talked about love but in a different act and in a different level. The poem The Sick Rose, having a ‘Rose’ in the title which talks about love, is part of William Blake’s collection, Songs of Innocence and Experience which are poems that are divided into Idealism and Realism. This is just a short poem with only 2 quatrains.
THE RIME OF THE ANCIENT MARINER ‘ANALYSIS’ THE RIME OF ANCIENT MARINER is a longest major poem by Samuel Taylor Coleridge published in 1798. Samuel Taylor was a English poet, literary critic and philosopher who also contributed as a founder of romantic movement. In his poems we can see how nature plays important role in displaying romantic thoughts of poet. In this poem the poet has shown his romantic side for nature in different ways. Romanticism does not only refer to romantic love story between two individual, it is also related to nature or any other thing in world.
In sonnet 30, the author is writing about the struggling past of himself. In my poem, I have included quite a bit of sensory language. For example, “The sun, lightening up the long bleak nights”, the purpose of me including the since of sight is to show the reader what was it like when spring overcomes the darkness of the winter. Unlike sonnet 30, in my poem, I used sensory devices to make the poem feel positive for example “…the sweet and precious honey.” It is describing the fresh and tasty honey of the new season of spring. In sonnet 30, Shakespeare, uses a minority of sensory devices but they all serve the same purpose.
For Romantic poets, there is no greater force upon humans than one of the many forms of the imagination. For William Wordsworth, this force is exemplified in memory. The greatest example of his exploration of memory comes from "Lines written a few miles above Tintern Abbey, On Revisiting the Banks of the Wye during a Tour, July 13, 1798." In it he displays his opinion of memory as a powerful source of enlightenment and pleasure through his interaction with the natural world. It becomes something he recalls time and time again to ease the ills of everyday life, giving him solace that he hopes can also affect the companion of the poem, his sister, Dorothy.
