The romantic era produced many of the stereotypes of poets and poetry that exist to this day (i.e., the poet as a tortured and melancholy visionary). Romantic ideals never died out in poetry, but were largely absorbed into the precepts of many other movements.
Romanticism in the nineteenth century allowed people view life sentimentally and for them to concentrate on an emotional way. People were able to drift from rational and constricted view of life (Budick 1996). Romanticism in this era was a contrast of enlightenment ideas featuring harmony that influenced doctrines of politics and ideology.
