In the poem of Aurora Leigh romanticism plays a huge part but I think it is different from what we expected. Whenever we previously read of romanticism the main play on the themes were optimism but also fear of going somewhere in life but being unsure of where you are going. With Aurora Leigh I see more of the life lead with pure knowledge of the next step. Because although he mother and father died she has this idea of how she can continue with herself. It is written closely to nature and exemplifies that in certain aspects but I think it changes throughout the whole poem. She is very picturesque of it all for the most part.
