‘Sure isn’t it better for them now?’ Dan said. Dan is not killing kittens for fun because on well-run farms pests have to be kept down. This shows us some relief knowing that the kittens are not just being killed for any other reason. In the fourth stanza “ ‘Prevention of cruelty’ [...]
The romanticism presentation was very informative and interesting. There were tons of information and detailed background knowledge of romantic artists. Before I watched the presentation, I wasn’t quite sure about what is romanticism and the difference between realism and romanticism. “Tyger” by William Blake had a great impact on me, because this poem explained almost [...]

The presentations about Romanticism all gave me information about people and ideas I did not know about before. The artists, poets, writers, musicians all had different jobs and expressed themselves in differently but there were many similarities which were mainly linked to Romanticism but the artists life also had an impact on their work.
From the presentation, I learned that Romanticism is a movement during the 18th and the 19th century that is against the Neoclassicism. People were being very idealistic and extreme ideas, the good people are good throughout the story, and bad people were completely bad. Transcendentalism is a movement in America from the 1830′s to the [...]

During the presentations on the various leading figures of the romantic era, it became clear that these men signified emotional qualities, and they represented these with passion, all their works are based on either inspiring emotions, describing emotions, or both. A recurring theme that all these authors present us with is nature and their philo [...]
I really enjoyed researching information about Romanticism for my oral presentation and watching others’ oral presentations about Romanticism. I found some useful and interesting information from oral presentations.
First of all, Shawn, Kim and Tanmay had an oral presentations about William Wordsworth and John Keats. The names were familiar but I didn’t know anything about [...]
Recently we had oral presentations where we presented different people from Romanticism to our peers. Most of the presentations were pretty good and I managed to learn several things from them.
From Shawn, Kim and Tanmay’s presentation I learned that John Keats’ first book was an utter failure, and that he was about to marry [...]

Dear Mr. Whitman,
This is William writing. You may not remember, but we have met before at the 1806 poetry convention in Paris, four years ago. I was the man who asked you whether or not you had ever thought about converting to another form of creative expression.
Despite this, [...]
I had never even heard the term “Romanticism” until recently, but surprisingly it turned out not to be a completely alien concept. Now after learning a lot about it thanks to Mr. Macknight, handouts, a podcast, and a wonderful presentations, I think of Romanticism as kind of being divided into two parts. One side is [...]

While he was alive, he wrote a lot of poetries, in very simple form with comprehensive words. He’s regarded as the most important people during the romanticism [...]

Although the majority of our class has yet not presented their work about romanticism I feel like I have already learnt a lot about it that I didn’t know before.
