Modern Romanticism

Modern Romanticism is a movement that emphasizes stories from 1900 to the present day influenced by Medieval Romanticism and the Romantic Era (the artistic and literary movement) of the 18th and 19th centuries.

In Modern Romanticism, you’ll find stories of the imagination: fantasy, the supernatural or fantastic, gothic romance, fairy tales, folklore, spirituality, and more. Modern Romanticism also encompasses romanticized period dramas, stories with a love of nature and the stars, passionate tales, and stories strongly emphasizing individuality, nostalgia, idealism, emotions, elevated language, or freedom.

Stories of Romanticism are not necessarily romantic with love stories attached but refer to the style of Romanticism in modern times.
