Romanticism was a movement in poetry (and art and literature in general) of the eighteenth  and nineteenth centuries, in revolt against the type of poetry of previous centuries. It allowed  poets to write about anything; no longer were there 'fit subjects for writing'. The German poet  Friedrich Schlegel first used the term romantic to describe literature, defining it as "literature  depicting emotional matter in an imaginative form."  "Many hold to the theory that it was in Britain that the Romantic Movement really started quite  early in the 18th century one can discern a definite shift in sensibility and feeling, particularly  in relation to the natural order and Nature" (J.A. Cuddon)  "TEARS, idle tears, I know not what they mean,"  "Tears from the depth of some divine despair"

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
