Transcript of Romanticism

Intuition
"Follow my intuition
It's gonna be a good day

I gotta go with what feels right, whoa whoa
Don't always need a reason why, whoa whoa...
Quit trying to please every
Man, woman, boy and girl"
~Intuition by Selena Gomez
Non-Conformity
"envy is ignorance; that imitation is suicide; that he must take himself for better, for worse, as his portion; that though the wide universe is full of good, no kernel of nourishing corn can come to him but through his toil bestowed on that plot of ground which is given to him to till. "~ Self Relience
Nature
"What about crying whales
Ravaging the seas
What about forest trails
Burnt despite our pleas
What about the holy land
Torn apart by creed"
~Earth Song by Michael Jackson
Romanticism
Individuality
"Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away" ~Walden by Henry David Thoreau
By: Emily Gerrits
"It is remarkable how easily and insensibly we fall into particular route, and make a beaten track for ourselves"

~Walden by Henry David Thoreau
Non-Conformity
"And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And then dances with the daffodils."

~Daffodils by William Wordsworth
"So might I, standing on this pleasant lea
Have glimpses that would make me less forlorn"

~The World Is Too Much With Us
by William Wordsworth
Optimism
"And this maiden she lived with no other thought
Than to love and be loved by me"

~Annabel Lee by Edgar Allan Poe
Simplicity
Ant the life of the ebony clock went out with that of the last of the gay. And the flames of the tripods expired. And Darkness and Decay and the Red Death Held illimitable dominion over all"

~ The Masque of the Red Death
Death
Feelings over Logic
Individuality
"Who said I can't wear my Converse with my dress?
Well baby, that's just me...

I won't change anything in my life
(I won't change anything in my life)
I'm staying myself tonight
(I'm staying myself tonight)"


Lala Land by Demi Lavado
Inexperience vs Experience
"Tonight
We are young
So let's set the world on fire
We can burn brighter
Than the sun"

We Are Young by FUN.
"Don't need no TV, I don't need no phone
Don't need a speedy car to get me home
Don't need no nothing
All I need is time for the simple life"

~Simple life by Casey Abrams
Simplicity
"Like it's the last night of our lives
We'll keep dancing 'til we die"
...
"Let's make the most of the night like we're gonna die young"

~ Die Young by Ke$ha

Carpe Diem
(Seize the Day)
"How you choose to express yourself
It's all your own and I can tell
It comes naturally, it comes naturally
You follow what you feel inside
It's intuitive, you don't have to try"

~Naturally by Selena Gomez

Individuality
"Don't look back
Live your life
Even if it's only for tonight"

~Alive by One Direction

Carpe Diem
Nature
~Big Yellow Taxi by Joni Mitchell
"Hey farmer farmer
Put away that D.D.T. now
Give me spots on my apples
But leave me the birds and the bees
Please
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
Till it's gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot"
Death
"It fell bodily. The corpse, already greatly decayed and
clotted with gore, stood erect before the eyes of the
spectators. Upon its head, with red extended mouth and
solitary eye of fire, sat the hideous beast whose craft had
seduced me into murder, and whose informing voice had
consigned me to the hangman. I had walled the monster up
within the tomb."

~Black Cat by Edgar Allan Poe
Nature
"I remembered the gradual patience That fell from that cloud-like snow, Flake by flake, healing and hiding The scar of our deep-plunged woe"
~The First Snowfall
"But our love it was stronger by far than the love
Of those who were older than we
Of many far wiser than we"
~Annabel Lee by Edgar Allan Poe
Inexperience vs Experience
"I'm on sunshine baby oh
I'm on sunshine baby oh

I'm walking on sunshine wooah
I'm walking on sunshine wooah
I'm walking on sunshine wooah"
~Walking on Sunshine by Katrina and the Waves
Optimism
This quote shows the importance of not going with the crowd because everyone is unique and different. There is no right or wrong when is comes to a person's personality and what they do because that is what they think is right.
By conforming, going with the crowd, and following fads, you are killing yourself, your personality, and your identity. What makes you
YOU
is now gone.
This quote shows that when you start a path of your own, its easy to continue on with it and continue non-conforming with others.
This quote shows that at this time Wordsworth is only observing nature and its beauty by using his feelings. He is not thinking logically at all.
Wordsworth is being optimistic about his situation currently in hoping that he might see anything that could make him less sad.
This shows simplicity because the only worry Annabel Lee has in life is her love. She is not distracted or distraught by any other matters no matter how simple nor complex.
Death is really prevalent in this quote. Everyone is killed by the Red Death. Also the ebony clock, that represents life, abruptly stops when the last person dies. This is symbolic death.
This quote is very descriptive and morbid. This show the obsession over death which is very characteristic of the dark Romantics or Gothics.
This quote shows the personal connection with nature along with its healing capabilities.
This quote shows the characteristic of the value of inexperience rather than experience. Their love was stronger than anyone older or smarter than they were. They are also saying that their inexperienced love is stronger than that of the love of experienced people.
This shows the characteristic of the care, respect, and appreciation for nature.
Follow what you believe in, think is right, and your intuition. Be unique and don't try and please everyone else.
This song is saying that I don't care what you think about who I am or what I do. I am going to do what I want and stay true to my self.
This quote is saying that we are young and inexperienced. We are setting the experienced world on fire. Changing it for the better by making it burn brighter.
This song represents living simply without the non-necessities or material goods.
In this song Ke$ha is making the most of the day, living like it her last, and there is no tomorrow.
Go with you own flow, be unique, and express your individuality.
Seize the day and make the most of it and don't regret it at all.
This song show country over city. The songs shows how its ashamed that how they are removing beautiful nature and harming it. The song even says that they would rather have some of the bad of nature rather than harm it.
The song walking on sunshine is very optimistic and has a good outlook of the situation.
