Slide 1- American Romantic Movement 1800-1865
"Belief in natural goodness of man, that man in a state of nature would behave well but is hindered by civilization. The figure of the "Noble Savage" is an outgrowth of this idea."
This means that the value is over reason
Aspiration after the sublime and the wonderful, that which transcends mundane limits.
People like ancient stuff and not the new things that are out there.
In art, the sublime, the grotesque, the picturesque, and the beautiful with a touch of strangeness all were valued above the Neoclassical principles of order, proportion, and decorum.
Nature as a source of instruction, delight, and nourishment for the soul; return to nature as a source of inspiration and wisdom; celebration of man’s connection with nature; life in nature often contrasted with the unnatural constraints of society
This means that people are changing some normal person for who they want him/her to be.
"Belief that what is special in a man is to be valued over what is representative; delight in self-analysis."
This means that you should be your self and be your own person.
High value placed on finding connection with fresh, spontaneous in nature and self
This means that they use nature or see nature as a peaceful place where you can be spiritual and peaceful with your self.
Interest in the “antique”: medieval tales and forms, ballads, Norse and Celtic mythology; the Gothic.
You can express and kind of feeling that you have in a poem
Belief in perfectibility of man; spiritual force immanent not only in nature but in mind of man
Can tell different stories by listening other stuff such as myths, legends. and folk cultures.
love is in the imagination and is better to imagine love
You find who you are as in beauty and trust in a imaginary world than in the real life
