    Very interesting. I think that breaking the norms is the most important aspect that drove many of the romantic novels I've read. Worked to help change society for the better.

    "How it makes him feel," yes, all about feelings, getting in touch with the feminine, Mother Nature. "Beauty is a joy forever," and "she walks in beauty as the night." There is a reason they were rock stars, outside societal norms. When poverty comes through the door, love goes out the window. Reminded me of Willoughby from Sense and Sensibility. Does Austen precede? Is it harkening back to courtly love too, Ivanhoe? He will end in a garret, dying from consumption and for his art, end scene with a dying candle, as Debussy is played in the background. Good job, maybe he better contact the old man for yet another loan. Thank you.

    I have really enjoyed watching your videos recently. I’m on a classics binge and it was lovely to find another booktuber putting out quality content about classics. I’d love to see more list type videos. I really enjoy videos on a particular theme or even a particular region listing recommendations.

    Love this breakdown, Tristan! Very interesting to me as a reader of classic romantic literature and actually very helpful as a novel writer too to be presented with these themes as a cluster. Sensibility for me is the most powerful and engaging part of the romantic novel! P.S if that's an unedited first draft then I would LOVE to read your finished writing!!

    Another great video Tristan. I am guilty, I am one that I always thought of Romantic as a love story 😂 so this is very helpful and informative. I consider myself new to Classics so channel like yours helps me to comprehend the classics more. I would like for an in depth video.
    Thanks Tristan for all your work.
