'''Romanticism''' was an innovative artistic, musical, and literary movement in the early 1800s which emphasized feelings, and nature. The Romantic period of art was also a period of rebirth for [[religion|religious values]]. Romanticism was against elements of the [[Enlightenment]] that emphasized [[rationalism]] at the expense of human emotion and imagination. In writing, Romanticism elevated the common man, [[nationalism]], [[freedom]], and the supernatural, while also glorifying nature.
The term "Romanticism" was coined because it originated in European regions of the "Romance Languages," namely French, Spanish and Italian. Novelist [[Victor Hugo]] led this movement in [[Europe]] with his works readable by the common man. German and British Romanticism followed soon after. Other countries such as [[America]] and [[Canada]] also had Romantic art movements.
[[America]]n literature typifying this era include [[Herman Melville]]'s ''[[Moby Dick]]'', [[Edgar Allan Poe]]'s writings, and the additional American writers [[Ralph Waldo Emerson]], [[Nathaniel Hawthorne]], [[Henry David Thoreau]], and [[Walt Whitman]]; writer [[Victor Hugo]] led this movement in [[Europe]] with his works readable by the common man.
[[Eugene Delacroix]] (1798-1863) was perhaps the most important of the [[French]] Romantic painters; in English literature, the Romantic movement was started by Lyrical Ballads (1798), poems co-authored by [[William Wordsworth]] and [[Samuel Taylor Coleridge]].
