Short and sweet, good if you want a basic understanding, but a little general to be of any use in any specific areas.

This review is from: Romanticism: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions) (Paperback)
This little book serves as a fascinating survey of the Romantic movement. It takes in the notion of the poet as divine, the embrace of nature and the flee from industrialiation, the importance of myth and an aesthetic attitude towards religion, the unification of thought and feeling, the love of the orient and the exotic, music as the ultimate art form to which all the others aspire , and a harking back to earlier times. Perhaps there is too much ground to cover in such a wide ranging subject to do it full justice in a study of this size, but it does give a good summary of its major aspects.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really good beginner for Romanticism, 25 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Romanticism: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions) (Paperback)
I bought this book because I had an exam on Romanticism and it really helped to give a broad over view of the movement and was easy to read. It felt like it was written in a more casual way but still keeping some formality and was a good book to dip in and out of - you don't have to read it in order to understand it. Overall a good buy.
