By publishing the Roman “Die Leiden des jungen Werthers” (the Sorrows of Young Werther), he became popular in Europe. Goethe is most known for his poem Faust, which got published in 1808. That story is about someone, who starts in heaven, but gets seduced by the devil. Goethe’s works had a huge influence on later literary movements and they are still very common in school and college lessons. Together with Friedrich Schiller, he represents the time period ‘Weimar Classism’ (Boyle).
He wrote poems between the ages thirteen and twenty Browning wrote a volume of Byronic verse called ‘’incondita’’. Browning attended the University of London in 1828 but he left at half of his session He met and fell in love with an author named Elizabeth Barrett in 1845 and they got married in 1846. Her and Browning kept their marriage a secret because her father ... ... middle of paper ... ...madness, and jealousy. In his poem he used imagery and wordplay Browning links with unit 5 because in his poem he put out a symbol for the urban modern life he writes this poem to influence the generation. I believe he is a symbolic author and a master at writing dramatic monologues.
Although a deeply religious man, he was always tormented by doubt, and the background of many of his poems is "the Dark Night of the Soul." French literature was now exerting an important influence upon English literary circles. Ernest Dowson and Arthur Symons were both followers of the "pote maudit" Paul Verlaine. Oscar Wilde, who was almost as much at home in Paris as in London, preached the gospel of aestheticism, which he had absorbed from Walter Pater. Of Wilde's fashionable comedies, the most brilliant was The Importance of Being Earnest (1895).
'Morte d'Arthur' and 'Ulysses' appeared in 1842 in the two-volume POEMS, and established his reputation as a writer. In 'Ulysses Tennyson portrayed the Greek after his travels, longing past days: "How dull it is to pause, to make an end, / To rust unburnished, not to shine in use!" After marrying Emily Sellwood, whom he had already met in 1836,... ... middle of paper ... ... heart blend and break, one against the other, with the pathetic inconsistency.” 7 As for Tennyson’s other great work, “Idylls of the King”, people seemed to give it a much nicer criticism. Prince Albert felt that the poems, which he thourghly enjoyed, “rekindle the feeling with which the legends of King Arthur must have inspired the chivalry of old, whilst the graceful form in which they are presented blends those feelings with the softer tone of our present age.” 8 Tennyson’s other popular works include: “The Princess”, “Maud” and “Drama” . These are just a few of his poems Tennyson wrote hundreds in his career.
He was regarded as the chief representative of the Victorian age in poetry. He become Poet Laureate in 1850 and was appointed by Queen Victoria and served 42 years. Alfred Lord Tennyson’s poetry was greatly influenced by his early childhood, best friend and religious beliefs; while his rhyme scheme was traditional; his morbid style was not popular for his time. This melancholy style of writing and use of topics of moral and intellectual beliefs of his time were especially vulnerable for later critic. Tennyson’s life at home wasn’t always a happy one.
Romanticism traveled everywhere including Germany, France, Russia, Catholic Europe, Poland, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Latin America and North America. Romanticism originated from Germany with one of its many artists, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. He wrote the novel “the sorrows of young werther” around 1774. more influences came from the Germany idealism Johann Gottlieb Fichte and Friedrich Schelling. Early Russian Romanticism comes from the poets Konstantin Batyushkov, who wrote “a vision on the shores of the lethe” in 1809, and Vasi... ... middle of paper ... ...e isn’t any other period in English literature that displays more variety in style, theme, and content than the Romantic Movement in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Romanticism can easily be described as a large network of sometimes competing philosophies, agendas, and also points of interest.
The two poets, distinguished in two completely different time periods with different characteristics, had some literary commonalities, such as similar references to nature, their faith in God, and highly descriptive verses, despite obvious differences ("English Literature", 6-7). William Wordsworth was a prominent Romantic poet. One of the first events in his life to influence his writing style and content was the French Revolution. The French Revolution symbolized the rebellion against the aristocracy in France. During this era, British Literature was in rebellion against its own current dominating writing style- neoclassical.
He had a great impact on various literary movements such as Romanticism, Modernism, and Symbolism. Not only was he able to revolutionize French poetry, but he was able to revolutionize poetry throughout the world. Baudelaire had a strong influence on Romanticism. Romanticism is a literary and art movement that occurred during the late 18th century that emphasized imagination, emotion, and love of nature. Baudelaire really liked Romanticism although he found himself “incapable of being moved by vegetation.” During the time he wrote “salon de 1846”, Baudelaire alleged that the ideal was represented by Romanticism.
Romanticism In Literature Romanticism in literature, began around 1750 and lasted until 1870. Different from the classical ways of Neoclassical Age(1660-1798), it relied on imagination, idealization of nature and freedom of thought and expression. Two men who influenced the era with their writings were William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge, both English poets of the time. Their edition of “Lyrical Ballads';, stressed the importance of feeling and imagination. Thus in romantic Literature the code was imagination over reason, emotion over logic, and finally intuition over science.
“Byron’s influence on European poetry, music, novels, operas, and paintings have been immense, although the poet was widely condemned on moral grounds by his contemporaries” (Dick, 54). Overall, the study focuses on the life of Lord George Gordon Byron, imagery, and about the lyrics of “She Walks in Beauty”. Lord Byron was an English Romantic poet and satirist whose poetry and personality captured the imagination of Europe. As his name would show, Byron was born into a noble English family. He lived the life as a beggar, and a proud and snobbish genius focused only to his own passions.
