Romanticism - A Guest Lecturer

We were lucky enough to have a guest lecturer(Dr Gary Farnell) in our HCJ lecture, and we were taught in more detail about Romanticism.
We started by focussing on Prometheus, the idea is that he stole ___ from the Gods and gave it the people. But as punishment he was tied to a rock while a crow pecked at his liver. For this he was adopted as a God of romanticism. He has featred n a number of literay works, and is seen is a symoblic figure in Romanticism.

Romanticism itself was generally a movement in Europe and America and grew in te late18th and early 19th Century.

It is also important to look at people like Kant and Hegel who's ideas link to the romantic period.
