Romanticism versus Classicism

Romantic revival was a reaction against the artificial restriction of the Age of Reason, Augustan Age. Romanticism rose as a reaction to classicism. On the one hand, Classicism focuses on rules and conventions.

The TMLA Guide to… The Lizzie Bennet Diaries | Transmedia LA

The TMLA Guide to… The Lizzie Bennet Diaries | Transmedia LA | English literature - Romanticism | Scoop.it

"The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, known to fans as TheLBD, reframes Jane Austen’s classic novel as an interconnected series of vlogs and social media accounts. The central YouTube account is LizzieBennet, and it was here less than a year ago that Elizabeth “Lizzie” Bennet (Ashley Clements) began her video diary with the immortal first line:

 

“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.”

 

Here printed on a t-shirt. Setting the tone for the series to come. That first episode introduces Lizzie, her best friend Charlotte Lu (Julia Cho), and her sister Lydia (Mary Kate Wiles).

 

The central YouTube account, which adheres to the Vlog format, tells the story of the novel from Lizzie’s point of view. As the story unfolds more members of the cast join the series, some of whom are given spin-offs (TheLydiaBennetbeing your humble writer’s personal favorite) and lives of their own on social media. William Darcy (Daniel Gordh), the romantic lead in Austin’s novel, makes his first appearance in the series’ world via Twitter. The character’s presence was maintained there for months before showing up on screen....

"When we two parted" by Lord Byron - Alzakera Education

"When we two parted" by Lord Byron - Alzakera Education | English literature - Romanticism | Scoop.it

"When We Two Parted" is a poem of George Gordon, Lord Byron written in 1808 and published in 1813 in “The poetical works of Lord Byron”.

 

When we two parted

In silence and tears,

Half broken-hearted

To sever for years,

Pale grew thy cheek and cold,

Colder thy kiss;

Truly that hour foretold

Sorrow to this.
