It is the product of the French revolution of the social ideological trend. Revolution advocated by the thought of "freedom, equality, fraternity" to promote personality liberation and emotional express request, the emphasis on individual independence and freedom, become the core idea of the romantic literature.
Although the romantic spirit, has a long history, but romantic in the Lord
The rise of righteousness, that was before the French revolution, tide of European democratic movement and national liberation movement. It reflects the bourgeois rising demand for personality liberation, is political revolt against feudal lords and Christian church joint rule, is also in literature and art of French neoclassical resistance.
The enlightenment on the political made prepared for the French revolution, and also for Europe's romantic movement in literature and art were prepared. After the victory of the French revolution, however, the establishment of the bourgeois dictatorship and capitalist society order, but the burst of the enlightenment ideals.
"Colorful language and enlightenment scholars, established by the 'rational victory turns out to be a social system and political system is extremely disappointed caricature." (Engels) across the European romantic movement, it is the social from all walks of life to the consequences of the French revolution and the enlightenment thinkers have put forward the "kingdom of reason" a reflection of the widespread disappointment.
Ideological basis
German classical oil painting philosophy and utopian socialism for romantic literature provides a theoretical basis. Kant, fauci pl classical philosophers emphasize the genius, inspiration and subjective initiative, all mentioned above self, thus the romantic literature emphasizes the subjective spirit and individualism tendency has exerted a far-reaching influence. Utopian socialism sharp criticism of the capitalism, the prediction on the outlook for the future ideal society, also have a big impact on romantic literature.
Literary tradition
On the literary tradition, medieval knight legend and romantic have direct origin, romantic word is a word that comes from the legend. And 18 th-century English sentimentalism literature and Rousseau's advocation, to express affection to the 19th century paved the way for the rise of romantic literature and prosperity.
The term "Romantic", is a "Romantic" (Romantic, Romantic) evolved the adjective. And the adjective "romantic" and "Romance" from France (American, namely "legend" or "novel") transformation. In 1654, according to the existing data demonstrate the talent for the first time to use the word "romantic", is roughly "legendary", "fantasy" and "not true", which obviously contains BianYi negative connotations. By the 18th century, the only gradually transformed into positive commendatory words, it is used to evaluation work, and get the sadness of "pleasant" such an additional meaning.
Can often be found in the romantic literature is in the past history of criticism, emphasis on women and children, the respect for nature. In addition, some romantic literature writers such as Nathaniel hawthorne, will their work foundation in natural/occult and on the basis of human psychology, they are deeply fascinated. Scottish poet James McPherson (James Macpherson) published in 1762 of poetry was an international reputation, greatly influenced the development of the early romantic literature, but also influenced the later Goethe and Scott.
School development editor
Romanticism as a literary thinking of European literature, generated by the end of the 18th century to the early 19th century bourgeois revolution and national liberation movement in s. It is politically against the feudal autocracy, in art and classical opposite, belongs to a kind of ideology of capitalism.
At the end of 18th century, with romantic thoughts contribute in European literary circles, the term "romantic" is used very popular, and in the name of France in 1798 to study the other creation method. It is reflected in all areas of art: Germany is poetry and music; The UK is poetry, novels, and landscape; France is the painting and sculpture.
European romantic ethos, is in the people's disappointment to the enlightenment "reason kingdom", to the bourgeois revolution in the "freedom, equality, fraternity" slogan of disillusionment and dissatisfaction with the capitalist social order of historical conditions. "The writers were dissatisfied with the reality, in an attempt to seek the path of solving social contradictions. But due to the writer's class position and political attitude is different, so the romantic thoughts in the form of two opposing schools, namely the positive romanticism and negative romanticism. The former is the tide of progress, it leads people to look forward, and the latter is a reactionary countercurrent, it guides the people back. This kind of difference, is essentially to the French revolution and the enlightenment of two very different responses.
Positive romanticism
Dare to face up to reality, criticized the darkness of the society, finger against the feudal aristocracy, against the remaining in the capitalist society
Caused by the feudal factors, at the same time of the bourgeoisie itself also expose the evils of the phenomena, so full of resistance, the passion of fighting, send the ideal in the future, to yearn for a new good life, some dream in favor of socialism. Representative writers have British byron, Shelley, Stevenson, France Hugo, George sang, Germany Heine, Russian pushkin (early), Poland's secret, he hits and Hungary petofi and so on. Their life and art practice, it is with the idea of the bourgeois democratic revolution, the national liberation movement together with other countries, most writers are active participants of the national liberation movement.
Negative romanticism
Negative romantic face the social reality of no sharp contradictions, avoid negative attitude, the idea is to overthrow the feudal aristocracy with that thought consciousness associated. They set off from the campaign against bourgeois revolution, against the status quo, want to stay in the past, beautify the medieval patriarchal clan, fantasy from the ancient feudal society to seek spiritual comfort and sustenance. The emergence of negative romanticism is, in fact, was to overthrow the feudal aristocracy downfallen thought emotion in literature. Representative writers have German Shi Leige brothers, namely, Shi Leige and Christopher Shi Leige, nova, summer cloth more Lyon in France, Martin pooh, Russia zhukov, Britain Wordsworth, Coleridge, Southey, and so on.
The rise of romanticism trend decline, it is decided by the characteristics of the historical conditions around the world. As a kind of molding and postmodernism produced in Germany in the first place. Due to the German juncker aristocrats rampant, the bourgeoisie weak, thus negative romanticism, positive romanticism developmental delay. Only after Heine boarded the literary world, positive romanticism to pick-up in Germany.
Romantic thoughts development the most complete, most specifications, most accomplished when pushed Britain. The British romantic master
Just sport compared with other countries, and has the following features;
First of all, the British romanticism no formation of a massive literature, it is the form of free activities by a writer.
Secondly, British romantic goes back to ancient times, is like a river running water, flowing constantly, lasted for 150 years. As early as the end of the 18th century, from William Blake (1757-1827) and peasant poet Robert pence (1759-1796) and others in the poem, put a romantic, with byron and Shelley's poems as a climax in the 1820 s, until the end of the 19th century (reigned 1837-1901), the ruling queen Victoria times, still can from Tennyson, Robert Browning, and his wife, Elizabeth Barrett Browning and others in the poetry, saw more than romantic.
Again, the British romanticism divided into opposing two factions. Negative romantic ahead of positive romanticism boarded the stage of literature and art, is the main representative Wordsworth, Coleridge, Southey. Rival, is to byron, Shelley, Keats is romantic.
The French
French romantic thoughts, like the waves of the sea, great momentums, spectacular, both sudden, fierce abnormalities. Its generation and development is repeatedly with the restoration of the feudal aristocracy and the bourgeois struggle inseparable.
The romantic first kill from the obstacles of classical set, after hand-to-hand fighting, every victory. Then in the romantic Angle of internal return, positive romantic organized, including critical realism writer, a broad united front, defeated the negative romanticism.
Before the 1820 s, the negative romantic hegemony, 20 s and 30 s, due to the victory of the bourgeoisie politically, positive romanticism rise abruptly. And obtained the dominant position.
In Russia, the development of romanticism is late. It was formed in the early 19th century as a genre. The positive romanticism and the Russian socialist movement closely linked, December in the noble revolution progress played a significant role. On behalf of the early writers have pushkin, ray column, etc.

In the history of literature, he dominated, written by Coleridge to participate in the lyrical ballads is considered after the Renaissance of the most important poetry, because it is in such aspects as theme, style, thoughts started the modern poetry creation. His poetry creation can be divided into three periods: before 1795, 1795-1807, 1807 years later, here in the middle of the stage was the peak of his period.
Samuel Coleridge
Samuel Coleridge (1772-1834). Was born in Devon, England, like William Wordsworth, is also a young father, sent to London after ten years, went to Cambridge school. Is for school students, but, prostitutes, opium all drink, often emotional fierce... Coleridge's magnum opus is often divided into two types: one kind is friendship poem or what he called a "talk" poem, another kind is symbolic poetry or mysterious. The former including the instrument of IO, roughly, the bodhi tree charmilles, frost night ", "depressing" and "to William Wordsworth," and so on. The latter mainly refers to the old after Yin ", "kubla khan," and "Chris teber" and so on.
George Gordon byron (1788-1824). Byron is one of the important contents in the 19th century the western spirit culture. He embodies the passion of times of the immortal, represents its intelligent, thoughtful, fury and power; He alone against the will of the Prometheus type, in the last century in the spiritual lives of the people of Europe were remarkable, so that changing the social structure, value judgment standard and the outlook of the culture ". (Russell) the individual genius, have great talent in the front of politicians and philosophers. His temperament is sensitive and violent, feeling deeply and delicate. But he also is a son of the degenerate, vain proud of Sir Alex ferguson and exclusive sadness egoist. He advocates the spirit of the great and magnificent career, but by the age of darkness. His heart is sad, he sigh filled the entire career... Weave the dream other poets, he was once considered the dream itself, in the poem, action, created a unique life between personality. He but is greater than the literature into literature. He said the essence of the two kinds of emotion that can limit his: love freedom, hate hypocrisy (political, religious, social, love, etc.), but he is a complicated contradictions assembly: micro lame from birth, but love the quartet roaming; As a noble, hierarchical, but also has civilian rebellion consciousness; He sometimes cloudy, anxious, but more show kind, humor, or playing with the relaxed; Before the time of his freedom, but stick to romantic antique style; Subjective confidence, he has rich experience of common sense; He has a strong sense of the patriarchy-centered, often appears in what he called a "women thinking"; He hated war, but is keen to "battle for freedom". In the end, he from the material and action into war, seems to be beyond or destroys a literary text, and to him to use action to create text interpretation of life.
Posey, than Shelley
Posey, than when Shelley (1792-1822). "Prometheus unbound" due to reflect its thought essence of center position in Shelley's poems. Four, the poetic drama written by Prometheus bound and liberation. The poem makes the two themes of the Shelley) - social change and human love, complementary, and matches them with two clues: Prometheus and his relationship with Jupiter, the good and evil respectively and reunited with Asia. The two clues by on behalf of the inevitability and the original vitality of hades to string, to influence the fate of the gods, decided to different characters of the battle. The poets Aeschylus's giant attract, because of his physical to virtue, the perfect personality, his basic selfless, no ambition, no jealousy, integrating human soul and eternal soul. Shelley wrote this poem without too much emphasis on the external changes, and pay more attention to self-perfection and the power of love, no longer involves the specific political freedom, and the focus in free yet profound meaning. Therefore, the concept of "Prometheus unbound" actually is poetry, aims to show the ideal life of mirage, provide the new enlightenment. Relative to real revolutionary spirit of byron and Shelley's revolutionary concept more ideal, and therefore more thoroughly, is negation of all aspects of the existing world philosophy. "If winter comes, can spring be far behind?" Shelley is the prophecy of a better world in the future will come, thought-provoking. Shelley was well known for its lyrics, inherit the tradition of Wordsworth, to nature into the poem, "ode to west wind", "cloud", "to a skylark" and other works, rhyme long, sincere, emotional ablaze with deep thoughts.
John Keats

Zhu, some people think that he is the most outstanding poet in the 19th century, he not only belongs to the romantic, set aestheticism and decadence are influenced by him. Although relatively European history, Keats's influence as byron, but when it comes to the history of English poetry, byron's reputation is not compared with Keats. Compared with Shelley, Keats is more willing to warm and cool to drawing viewers attitude to life drama, to play various roles in the real life of reality show the artist's interest, he is not rejected by art ideal finite things, but in specific human emotion has confirmed the existence of the infinite. Keats letter pointed out that in 1818, Wordsworth is Milton "deeper. Keats developed about faith, think that the world is" make deep valleys of the soul ", but no other way. Some critics believe that Keats's tendency is to discover new permanent value, mainly he not make us believe that the world is full of misery and oppression, but let's get up the courage to accept the fact that the world is full of joy, health, freedom. These belong to others, but as long as the fight for, can also belong to our own. Keats thought and art essence is to let us have the courage to believe that someone else is happy, and can feel heartfelt joy.
