Romanticism fundamentally started with poetry, and even though you might not realize it here in the modern world, we are just as fixated on poetry now as the people were then. How else can you explain the power that rappers, singers, musicians, and writers have on our culture? What you will do is find a poem by one of the six Romantics we focused on over the last two weeks (1st generation: Blake, Wordsworth, and Coleridge; 2nd generation: Keats, Byron, and Shelley) and paraphrase what the poem is about and how you think it reflects the values of the generation that produced it. No outside research is required beyond finding the poem itself online, but if you want to cite sources you are certainly welcome to.
The paper you submit should be approximately 400 words long, double-spaced, Times New Roman 12 font, and feature a MLA header on the first page. The header appears as follows:
