This unit will examine the impact of the Romantic Movement across Europe by examining the historical and cultural connections between three European countries (Germany, England and France) during the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. We will consider the different national contexts separately, look at their influence on each other and at the influence of Romantic thought throughout European society, identifying ways in which Romantic ideas and values revolutionised social, cultural and aesthetic ideas, transformed worldviews and shaped the future of Europe.
