Age of Romanticism Objectives

Don't think Love... think Freedom. To understand the Romantics, you need to understand the flow of events. First, the Industrial Revolution created a HUGE economic boom. This led to a rise in horrible workplace conditions which in turn lead to a rise in riots and protests. Finally, the Removal of the 'self' away from the chaos leads to the transcendence era. Basically, have you ever just wanted to get away and say NOPE, and return to basic? That's the Romantics.
