Hi Sheddy15 :) Sounds like an interesting project you have in front of you. What do you mean by "unseen romantic text". Do you mean you must write a critical essay about a Romantic poem you haven't studied in class?

As far as generally writing a critical piece is concerned, I'd look through your chosen poem/work and create a thesis point--basically you come up with a statement that you will defend in your essay. For example, you could say something like: "John Keats has been considered by many to be a non-political poet (a true aesthete (sp?) ). However, in his unfinished work "The Cap and Bells," Keats makes his politics known." Then you show how his politics shine through the poem, using the poem itself as your evidence. That might not be the best thesis statement, but it gives you an idea of what I mean.

Thank you, thats helped a lot!! yea they give us a piece of romantic poetry/prose and we have to right a critical appreciation of the work with regards to our understanding of the romantic era :shock: BUT considering what i know about the romantics (and ur point about making a statement to defend) i feel ok about it now...
