Romanticism's basic vehicle of expression happened to be poetry, but novelists also used much of its styles. In America, romanticism was a bit modulated and delayed, getting sway over letters and arts from the year 1830 to the period of civil war (Mellor 150). Contrary to the English literature, American literature presented novels as Romanticism exposition's most fitting genre. In a wider manner, Romantic Movement can be seen as a style which can be applied to the literature of any period. Therefore, any piece of literature from the Homeric epics to modern novels can be seen to have romanticism stamp. The paper will also discuss the history of romanticism.
