With new technical styles come new forms of music which became evident in the Romantic Period. Changing from the Classical Music Period, the Romantic Musical Period’s stylistic techniques were deeply emotional. The composers of the time expressed freely their personal feelings which were profoundly influenced by the ideals of the French Revolution, including freedom, fraternity and independence. Also, new and improved instruments were invented and utilized during this time. With warm melodies and long lyrical passages, Romantic composers were able to lead people do love their music.
“Désirée’s Baby” by Kate Chopin is the epitome of amazing love. This story can be compared to “The Story of an Hour”, as well as “The Storm”. However, rather than highlight her character’s sexuality or internal emotional conflicts, Chopin manages to make a gradual impact on Desiree’s strength, courage, and pride; elements that made me fall in love with the story of a woman who is a victim of assumptions, lies, and racism. Unconditional love is the predominant characteristic that allows both Desiree and her baby to survive her husband’s narrow-minded personality, and indirectly allows them to escape a cruel reality. Chopin story is a realistic example of a woman’s struggles.
To the listeners that do not have someone in their heart, "Dreaming of You" is a beautiful song that still touches the senses. Music can move a person in incredible ways, whether by healing, inspiring, saddening, or even angering. But when a song touches in a positive way it imprints a lasting memory of itself in the heart and soul. That might explain why some of the most classic and popular songs through the centuries are love songs. The creative ocean of love lyrics and melodies is probably as vast as a Universe and among the shining stars are two humbling songs that will continue to move the emotions.
", may at first seem vague, but with a more thorough approach the reader can gain new insight into Browning's purpose. Browning uses her unique style and word choice to spice the poem and give it flavour, while the sonnet format keeps the poem simple. Browning proved her excellence and innovativeness as an author, in the multi dimensions of "How Do I love Thee?". Rossetti's heart-touching 'Remember' filled with eupimism portrays the strong passionate love one has for her lover which would carry on even after death. Rossetti's religious approach to this sonnet gives it an almost heavenly feel adding to the fervent love one has for her lover.
Many characters in stories are rewarded by poetic justice – a type of justice where the good receive a good end, and the bad do not. The story The Good Maiden and the Step-mother is about a young maiden who tries her best in order to please her step mother but never succeeds no matter what difficult tasks she completes. When she receives a task that cannot be completed she faces a wall of fear, but, luckily for her, an old lady goes out of her way in order to assist the young maiden with the tasks given to her, allowing her to succeed and fulfilling her wishes. In the end, the young maiden receives a castle as a reward for her kind behavior, while the step-mother dies due to her selfish interests. This story moves along accordingly while using the ideas of fears, behaviors, and wishes to describe many ideas throughout the story.
Mademoiselle Reisz uses music as a form of artistic expression, not merely as a way of entertaining others. In contrast to Mademoiselle Reisz, the Farival twins play the piano purely for the sake of the gathered company. The twins’ association with the Virgin Mary, and, hence, with a destiny of chaste motherliness, links them thematically with notions of how Victorian women should behave. Their piano playing—entertaining but not provocative, pleasant but not challenging—similarly serves as the model for how women should use art. It becomes clear that, for a Victorian woman, the use of art as a form of self-exploration and self-articulation constitutes a rebellion.

Normally “… the role [of wifehood] has traditionally satisfied a woman’s love and for a feeling of belonging” (Skaggs, 2) but for Chopin, the circumstance was different. She believed that becoming a wife and a mother forced her to subordinate herself from masculine authority. She lost many people in her life and had to begin supporting her family at a very young age. Then, later in her life, “she found herself thrust into another new role, adjusting again to new relationships with people and to a new image of herself” (Skaggs, 2). All of these experiences in Chopin’s life helped her to develop the main character of her novel; a young woman striving for love, freedom and independence.
