Hey Everyone!
I've been given an essay question with a quote to do in two days time. But I don't completely understand the quote. It is: "More than anything else, Romanticism is a celebration of the Self, and, to the Romantic composer, it was the e xpression of a personal experience that links one human being to another and all human beings to the larger truth."

I just have to evaluate the extent to which this is true in different texts (Coleridge, Wuthering Heights, and a related text (I'm thinking William Blakes 'A sick Rose')

What I don't understand is what the larger truth actually is. Does it have a religious connotation or is it talking about nature, humanity and idealism???

Thanks Guys! : )
