Romanticism, which was a movement in literature during the late 18th and early 19th centuries, focuses more on nature than civilization. Frequently in Romanticism imagination and emotion are valued higher than rationality. Other aspects , such as the use of the supernatural and nature are also elements of Romanticism. By incorporating emotion, nature, and the supernatural, Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Fall of the House of Usher” is a strong example of Romantic literature.
