Abstract: It is necessary to distinguish clearly between different relationships intimately connected to each other when talking about a movement complex like romanticism. The liberal disposition, developed in the human spirit according to natural tendencies or according to the particular conditions of place and time, is often identified with the romantic arrangement. The same problem concerns the definition of idealism, the distancing of the intellect from limitations of empirical experience and openness to other levels of knowledge that detach man, especially the artist, from the conditions of immediate reality. These trends, merged with several others, often rise to the surface when searching to give a definition of romance. It is a contemporary attitude, a plot of provisions and beliefs that act in man in his research of the infinite and on its hard path towards new spaces.
