British Romanticism in context
In no way can this Romantic revolution be seen as something typically British or as something that is restricted to poetry or to literature. The ideas and ideals of the few Romantic writers we shall discuss, were shared by millions, all over Europe. Artists, intellectuals, young and old, man and woman, the virus spared no one.
