    The Romantic Movement, which originated in the ballad and song revival of the 1760s, later absorbed the political and intellectual energies of the French Revolution, transforming received modes of expression and sparking a far-reaching debate on the power of the imagination and the nature of authorship. This module explores the development of the Romantic aesthetic, concentrating on poetry and prose of the 'first-generation' Romantics. The module highlights national and regional traditions within `British¿ Romanticism while also exploring writers' imaginative engagement with the wider world.
