Thank you very much.
Here are a few things of Romanticism I'd like you to check.
1) The Romantics turned to earlier verse forms.
2) They saw society as an evil (force?) which destroyed the individual's personality. In some of them this spirit of revolt led to a sort of titanism, that is to the cult of the rebel and the outcast.
3) In others it led to the exaltation of the irrational an mystic aspects of life, a concern with the supernatural.
They were concerned with (not about?) the supernatural.
4) Still others turned to an idealized form of Hellenism, inspired by the Greek cult of beauty.
5) Rousseau contrasted natural behaviour, which he considered as impulsive and unrestrained, with social behaviour, which was governed by reason.
Great emphasis was placed on (given on is possible???) the individual.
Great importance was given to the individual.
6) The poet was seen as a prophet divinely inspired thanks to his greater knowledge of the world, imaginatie capacity and greated sensibility (sensitivity??).
7) Nature was exalted and seen as a real living being. Under the influence of German idealism, nature was thought to share the same feelings as man since they were both driven by the same animated principle.
