Romanticism explores and challenges the central ideas of high Romanticism: the tragedy and gallantry of the individual s life journey, the appeal of revolution and violence, the beckoning forces of Nature, and the estrangement from but constant longing for God. Here is a powerful argument for the primacy of strong emotion.


So I offered a bargain:

All of it, the books, the papers,

and whatever is still brewing in my teapot head

if only I may have

the home that I have seen in his face.

What lies you tell, and call them love."
