Romanticism was a complex artistic, literary and intellectual movement that originated in the second half of the 18th century in Europe. It has very little to do with things popularly thought of as "romantic", such as RomanticComedy, although love may occasionally be the subject of Romantic works. Rather, [[UsefulNotes/TheEnlightenment it is the exact counterpoint to the ideas of the Age of Enlightenment]] - that being emotion and imagination is superior to that of reason and intellect. Think [[WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory Dee Dee instead of Dexter]]. The individual has a central role in Romantic works; he/she is usually in conflict with the established society and goes through internal turmoil because of this. CharacterDevelopment usually occurs. NatureLover is very common in Romantic poetry.

Politically, Romanticism had both a positive and negative aspect. It was inspired by what were perceived to be the successes and failures of UsefulNotes/TheFrenchRevolution and the rise of UsefulNotes/NapoleonBonaparte. On one hand people romanticized the idea of a popular revolution, explored the idea of regional and ethnic identity and spread the concept of nationalism, on the other hand people romanticized the revolution, developed a one-dimensional approach to regional and ethnic identity and contributed to the birth of narrow nationalism which led to exclusion of some groups from the dominant idea and likewise believed once again that history is shaped by exceptional men such as Napoleon. Nothing is without its contradictions of course, just like in life and history. Many romantics initially started out as quite radical and progressive before becoming conservative, including Wordsworth whereas other authors like Shelley and Byron never did sell out and remained liberal to their ends. Romanticism had its source in the ugliness of colonialism which thrived during this time, where the AdventureArchaeologist would constantly "rediscover" earlier cultures but write-off the modern day nations as TheRemnant thereby justifying their continuous economic exploitation of these regions.
