Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Romanticism explores and challenges the central ideas of high Romanticism: the tragedy and gallantry of the individual’s life journey, the appeal of revolution and violence, the beckoning forces of Nature, and the estrangement from but constant longing for God. Here is a powerful argument for the primacy of strong emotion.

     the home that I have seen in his face.
     The answer came at once: No.
     What lies you tell, and call them love.
