Romanticism

Romanticism

An introduction to Romanticism for Extension 1 students.

 

 


* Creative Writing  [Click on the Ext 1 page]

 

As most of our set texts are poems, I would avoid using another poem as a related text.

1. Use an ARTWORK from this era. Choose one from the selection in the next column

 

2. You could also use one of these images as a stimulus for your creative writing

[ These two ideas were presesnted by Ms K Stapleton at a recent workshop on this elective]

The late 17th & 18th Century is given different titles; The Enlightenment, The Neoclassical Era, The Augustan Era, The Age of Reason. To avoid confusion I am going to use the terms The Neoclassical Era / Neoclassicism

* The Neoclassical Heroic Couplet

* * Wordling Neoclassicism

* Introduction to Neoclassicism 1

* Introduction to Neoclassicism 2

* Some Characteristics of the Neoclassical Era

In a powerful contrast, the critic Abrams showed that until the Romantics, literature was usually understood as a mirror, reflecting the real world, in some kind of mimesis; but for the Romantics, writing was more like a lamp: the light of the writer's inner soul spilled out to illuminate the world.
