Literary Romanticism

Romanticism is the conceptual school of art. It deals, not with the random trivia of the day, but with the timeless, fundamental, universal problems and values of human existence. It does not record or photograph; it creates and projects. It is concerned—in the words of Aristotle—not with things as they are, but with things as they might be and ought to be.
—Ayn Rand, "Introduction to The Fountainhead,”
The Objectivist, March 1968


(Please follow this link if you don't understand what Romanticism is. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roman... It does not mean romance novels. There are plenty of lists for those elsewhere.)
