British Literature in Credo Reference: Romanticism
A late 18c and early 19c movement in art, literature and music, characterized by an emphasis on feelings and emotions, often using imagery taken from nature, and creating forms which are relatively free from rules and set orders.
From The Welsh Academy Encyclopaedia of Wales Although Romanticism appeared in Wales at the end of the 18th century, its roots are to be found in the work of antiquarians at the end of the 17th, with their enthusiasm for the remote Celtic and druidic past.
