READ THE ISSUE: THE ROMANTICS

We travel back to early 18th century Europe. The Industrial Revolution has already etched its way through almost every part of society leaving behind reshaped notions of our world. Philosophy, Art, History, Religion, Nature- it had all been rationalized. The wonder, folklore, and mystery of life has vanished and instead been replaced by mechanism. However, this wasn’t enough for the innovators, the trailblazers, or for those who dared to ask why. The Romantic period was a beautiful rebellion, one that valued the aesthetic experience over all else. Today we would likely call this intuition or going with your gut. The individual was urged to reconnect with his emotions as well as the pulse that traced above, below, and within him. Art once again became ethereal, aggressive, and intensely emotional. Literature again became a dance of seduction and nature regained her haunting wonder.
