The Romantic Period

This week our topic in class was Romantic Period. We had an entrance into that period. It is a literature movement in the 18th century.

The founders of this period are two young poems: William Wordsworth and. Samuel Coleridge. They published a book, then the movement spread. It reminds me “Beş Hececiler, Yedi Meşaleciler, etc.” in our literature.

That period, as we can see from its name, is about love, emotions. They give importance to reason. They talked about the perfect order in the universe. The nature was given importance also.

In a short way that period looks like to me as returning to the Renaissance. Of course there are some differences, but sometimes people have a need to return back.
