Course Description :   The third part of the 3-fold course series on love covers the period since the late 18th Century to  nowadays.   The   word   ‘Romanticism’   describes   a   historical   period   during   which   individuals   began   to  emphasize their personal emotional life over public and social considerations.  To be true to one’s  feelings and inclinations started to seem more important than social conformity.   In this new  scheme, love became a touchstone of personal self-realization.  The aim of love was to find, not  just a socially profitable match, but a kindred soul, a mirror, and an opportunity to realize one’s  unique personality.  For this reason, the Romantic lover is said to cultivate his emotions; at times  they seem more important indeed than the beloved.
