The ideas of romanticism are clearly manifested in “To a Skylark”, a poem written by Percy Bysshe Shelly in 1820.

Dunbar reveals why the caged bird sings when he says,”It is not a carol of joy or glee,/… But a plea that upward to heaven he flings-”(18,20).

In the poem, “The Lesson of the Moth,” poet Don Marquis uses the protagonist, a moth, to teach the narrator, Archy, a cockroach, what it is like to have a dream worth dying for. Similarly, Daniel Keyes, author of “Flowers for Algernon,” a short story, uses the main character, Charlie Gordon, a mentally disabled man who longs to be smart, to develop the idea that it is better to risk to achieve happiness rather than to live wondering what life could have been like.
