9.Romanticism.The older generation of romantics. W. Blake. “Lake poets”-S. Coleridge,W. Wordsworth

Covers ~30 years(end of 18c-1830). Rom. in lit-re – a reaction of dif. classes of society to French Bourgeois Revolution. Economic & social changes took place in E. – industrial revol. New class appeared- proletariat. People destroyed waving machines- Luddite movement (because they left jobless). Ruling class of E. was against any progressive thought influenced by Fr. Rev.→”white terror” progressive-minded people were persecuted. In the centre of the period-romantic poet. He is young, poor, unrecognized,talented,who dies in early age. The romanticists paid great attention to the spiritual life of man. This was reflected in an abundance of lyrical verse. Great attention was dedicated to Nature & its elements. The description became very rich in form & many-sided in contents. The writers used such means as symbolics, fantasy, grotesque; legends, tales, songs & ballads became part of their creative method.The romanticists were talented poets & their contribu­tion to E. lit-re was very imp. Rom. Were against industrialisation→they run away from city. 2 generations of Romant.: old( S.Coleridge, W.Blake, W.Wordsworth) & young( G.Byron, P. Shalley, J.Keats). Old gen. was inspired by the ideas of F.Rev.Then they saw the terror of rev., were disappointed, turned their attention to nature, they looked back to patriarchal E.& refused to accept the progress of industry. Among them- S.Coleridge, W.Blake, W.Wordsworth who formed the “Lake School” as they lived for a time in Lake District in n-w of E. The "Lake" poets resorted to popular forms of verse, that were known &could be understood by all. W. Blake(1757-1820)- his poetry is full of images. He saw visions& drew inspiration of his visions. He published sev. collect. of poems: “Songs of innocence”1787 he published & illustrated them himself. The atmosphere of poem- idyllic.It’s about imaginary world where no troubles. Next collect.- darker in moods.S. Coleridge,W. Wordsworth understood romant. in 2 dif. ways: while Coleridge thought to make the supernatural "real", Wordsworth thought to stir the imagination of readers through his down-to-earth characters taken from real life ( "The Idiot Boy"), or the beauty of the Lake District that largely inspired his production ( "Lines Composed a Few Miles Above Tintern Abbey"). S. Coleridge –“Lyrical Ballads”1798- collect. of poems. W.W.wrote about life of ord. people, used everyday l-ge. “ The Prelude”- autobiographic poem. The poetry of S.G.-more philosophic. He developed the theory of writings, gave the definition of the concept ‘poetic imagination’. Translated works of german philosophers.
