Romantic movement

Romantic Movement

Lord Byron – “My Soul is Dark”

My soul is dark - Oh! quickly string                         The harp I yet can brook to hear;                     And let thy gentle fingers fling                         Its melting murmurs o'er mine ear.                     If in this heart a hope be dear,                         That sound shall charm it forth again:                     If in these eyes there lurk a tear,                         'Twill flow, and cease to burn my brain.

  •                     But bid the strain be wild and deep,                         Nor let thy notes of joy be first:                     I tell thee, minstrel, I must weep,                         Or else this heavy heart will burst;                     For it hath been by sorrow nursed,                         And ached in sleepless silence, long;                     And now 'tis doomed to know the worst,                         And break at once - or yield to song.

  • Oliver Twist- Charles Dickens

  • “The boy was lying, fast asleep, on a rude bed upon the floor; so pale with anxiety, and sadness, and the closeness of his prison, that he looked like death; not death as it shows in shroud and coffin, but in the guise it wears when life has just departed; when a young and gentle spirit has, but an instant, fled to Heaven, and the gross air of the world has not had time to breathe upon the changing dust it hallowed.”


Impressionism

Impressionism

  • 1870s – “An artistic movement intended to capture the first fleeting impression made by an object on the viewer’s eye.”
