Definition of Romantic poetry

Romantic poetry Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & Glossaries
English Wikipedia - The Free Encyclopedia
Romantic poetry is the poetry of Romanticism, a philosophical, literary, artistic and cultural era reacting against prevailing Enlightenment ideals of the nineteenth century providing natural, emotional, personal and artistic themes. Inevitably, the characterization of a broad range of contemporaneous poets and poetry under the single unifying name can be viewed more as an exercise in historical compartmentalization than an attempt to capture the essence of the actual movement.
