The key characteristics of Romanticism are emotional intensity, imagination, and a focus on the individual, as well as nature and human emotion.
Romantic criticism relies on the creative faculties of the reader, so this type of criticism is subjective and often based on an individuals interpretation of a work. For example, in the book Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson, a critic may say that the black sheep Ben Gunn is a symbol of Captain Flint’s evil side. Other critics may interpret him as a harmless eccentric.
