Romanticism in America gives us three great names: Washington Irving, Fenimore Cooper and Edgar Poe.
Romanticism appeared in American literature when great disappointment after the Revolution of 1775-1783 took hold of the people. The writers of Romanticism depicted life as a struggle between vice and virtue, and insisted that virtue should defeat evil. But when they looked for the triumph of virtue in real life, they could not find it. So the most characteristic feature of Romanticism is the great gap between reality and the ideal — the dream of the poet, artist or writer. The approach of the writers to life was almost exclusively through the emotions. They wanted to show reality but their creative method, peculiar to them alone, resulted in works that depicted life so strange and unusual.
Romanticism gave a powerful impetus to literature development, and produced great poets and writers who were true patriots, loved their country and recognized the importance of developing national literature and national history.
Give Russian equivalents of the following:
Great disappointment, to take hold of the people, to depict life, struggle between vice & virtue, characteristic feature, a gap between the reality & the ideal, exclusively through the emotions, creative method, powerful impetus.
