Romanticism arises out of a fundamental trait in human nature, which always exists, although sometimes it is obscured for long periods by opposing movements, such as classicism and realism. There is always a struggle between the two fundamental traits in human nature, - romanticism and classicism, or heart and head , and sometimes one, sometimes the other gains the ascendancy, generally as a reaction upon the other . Throughout the nineteenth century the world of reality taught us truths and led us to respect the value of facts. Along with this stream of facts there were waves of emotional life thrown up by the large romantic movement, which flourished at the beginning of the century.
