Urban Romantics

This group has become officially dormant. It happens. If you want to revive this group, or create a new group on the same topic see this page.

Urban Romantics is a new movement in modern arts and culture. It could be traced back to Romanticism - an artistic, literary and intellectual movement characterised by revolt against social and political norms and a reaction against the scientific rationalization of nature. It was embodied most strongly in the visual arts, music, and literature.

The group is for all souls seeking new direction, new ideas and inspiring writing. Romantics of the past in Russian literature include Alexander Pushkin, Mikhail Lermontov, Fyodor Tutchev.
The poet and painter William Blake is the most extreme example of the Romantic sensibility in Britain. An early German influence came from Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
