This paper discusses the idea that the Romantic era is a period that is often greatly misunderstood. This paper further discusses that readers who are not intimately familiar with its artists, its works, and its characters often dismiss the entire movement as one of petty immorality, total emotionalism, and being void of logic or real thought.

From the Paper:

" Yet, when one looks at the resultant writers and classics of the Romantic era, one is struck by the imagination, the thought, the richness and depth of the works. In his Prelude, Wordsworth used looming cliffs and other dark imagery, fear, and depression to reach into the depths of his imagination. Coleridge did the same with his own darkest despair and melancholy, writing of lime-tree bowers and Abyssinian maids as the result. Yet, if this gloom and dismay, this Romantic depression, is left unchecked and untamed, if it is not allowed to become a muse and inspiration for things of beauty."
