The Romantic Period was a time of great change Europe was changing from an agricultural country to an industrialized country Also during that time the French Revolution happened so there was a big rift between the people and the government From these changing times came these inspired works from great British authors There are six different themes that make up Romantic literature and the two I will be focusing on in this essay is nature and individualism And the three poems I will be focusing on are the following Ode to the West Wind Lines written a few miles above Tintern Abbey and London Ill first focus on the theme of individualism There are a few definitions that demonstrate individualism One important definition is a belief in democratic ideals concern for human liberty and a great outcry against carious forms of tyranny I really see the theme of Individualism in the poem London The whole poem is talking about how hopeless the people look as he walks through the streets of London We see this when he says In every cry of every man In every Infants cry of fear In every voice in every ban The mind-forgd manacles I hear From this quote we also see they are feeling hopeless because they feel the government is constricting them and taking away their rights We see this based on he phrase mind-forgd manacles I think the whole purpose of this poem was for the people to realize the bad that is happening but also for people to get up and do something about it Next Ill talk about the theme of nature I feel as though this was a very strong theme throughout Romantic Literature The theme nature is defined by seeing the landscape with human qualities and having human characteristics It also is defined as being seen as bringing out the goodness in humanity I could really feel the theme through the two poems
