Romanticism 

Romanticism in England began early in the 19th century. This was changed the way in which people perceived themselves and nature and this greatly influenced the writers of this time. It was a reactionary period and this was seen through the works of many artists such as poets, writers and painters. Romanticism focused on emotions of the human instead of rationalism in thought. It was a combination of both modern Science and Classicism that allowed for Romanticism to be formed and introduced to society.
