Zorilla was considered one of the best play writers of the Spanish romantic theater. Introduction The Romantic Era, or the romantic period, was an literary, artistic, and very intellectual movement that originated in Europe.
Murdoch’s essay “Against Dryness: A Polemical Sketch” is one that Byatt often quotes as a way to understand her own aims as a novelist. Murdoch argues that “through literature we can re-discover a sense of the density of our lives”; that at the end of the 20th century, “we have been left with far too shallow and flimsy an idea of human personality”. In this essay, Murdoch also identifies and argues for what she calls the “crystalline” novel: “a small quasi- allegorical object portraying the human condition.” It is, she says, “what the more serious writers want to create.” When Byatt writes in one of her critical studies of Murdoch that “ there is a large number of suspicious reviewers and readers who find the elaborate, in some way intensely artificial, world of her novels difficult to take,” she is partly responding to her own
According to the Marriam-Webster Learners Dictionary (1828) morality is distinguishing between what is right and what is wrong behaviour and these are centred around peoples beliefs.

When it comes to symbolism in literature，it usually refers to a European literary and artistic movement of the late 19th and early 20th centuries , which chiefly originated in France , Russia, and Belgium, and was deeply influenced by the great works of Edgar Allen Poe. As in most literary rebellions, the new literature rose out of a desire to renovate the literary theories of a previous age. Symbolism as a new and extraordinary literary writing tactic came naturally into the world of literature, since this literary and artistic movement grew out of the general crisis in bourgeois humanitarian culture. Not like the realist principles of the artistic image in the works of the Parnassians and naturalists in the novels of the latter half of the
The novel comes to therefore is the obsession that Calvinists was a topic of morality; repression of sexuality; feelings of guilt and the need for repentance; the question of the salvation of the soul. In this work there were talking about the problems, of which the discussion was banned in America in XIX century, as the impact of the new democratic experience on individual behavior, particularly sexual and religious freedom rights. The author uses allegories, which so often resorted early Puritan colonists. Revolutionary ideology also played a role in the glorification of a proud freedom - even if it was the freedom of a single person. If we consider the situation from a psychological and historical point of view, it is possible to find a parallel in the teen rebellion against parents, which in this case is represented in England.
In the 19th century European Romanticism influenced the American writers and gave rise to a new epoch in the literature. The authors of that period put emphasis on individual and intuition, at the same time focusing on emotions and spirituality. The latter was especially visible in the philosophy of transcendentalism.

In poertic-realist films, there is a notable emphasis on what was known as mise-en-scene, translated literally to “put into the scene”. This meant that the importance set-dressing, and lighting were de-emphasized. Poetic realism is supposed to be the recreation of realism, but not inthe same way as documentary film. Therefore, they tend
As may be observed, English Romanticism saw a wide variety of authors who produced a flourishing scholarly and popular works. For this reason, it is essential to study it in relation to its main literary forms; namely, novel and poetry. Although it is worth noting that the Romantic Literature is especially regarded as a poetic period, it is also relevant to mention that this period saw the first flowering of English novel. After having dealt with the historical background of the period as well as with its most salient features, it is time to move on to the second section of this topic: Romantic fiction in Britain. Although, as has already been mentioned, the Romantic period is best known for the work of major Romantic poets, the period also saw the rapid growth of the novel.

2. The English Novel 1945-1990 The history of the post-war novel in English, and also that of drama and poetry, cannot be understood without reference to the coexistence in the first half of the twentieth century of Modernism and the more traditional approaches to literature inherited from the Victorian period. The Modernist writers reacted against realism in fiction and the remains of Romantic sentimentalism in poetry by introducing technical innovations that could be used to look at reality from the point of view of the irrational, the subconscious, the anti-sentimental, or the highly individualistic. In drama, the revolution followed other lines, with G. B. Shaw 's introduction to the English stage of the naturalistic drama developed by
