Potreste spiegarmi i concetti riassunti in questo paragrafo? La traduzione la so, ma il testo non mi è molto chiaro...

The limitless possibilities of human mind were celebrated to penetrate subconscious levels: dreams, drugs, madness, hypnosis occupied a place in the romantic picture of the world have found unhealthy. There was serious concern about the experience and insights of childhood. To the classical age a child was important only in so far as he would become an adult and civilised being. Childhood was considered a temporary state, a necessary stage in the process leading to adulthood. To a Romantic a child was purer than an adult because he was unspoilt by civilisation. His uncorrupted sensitiveness meant he was even closer to God and sources of creation, therefore childhood was a state to be admired and cultivated
there was new emphasis on the significance of the individual. The augustans had seen man as social animal, in his relationship with his fellows. The Romantics saw him essentially in the solitary state and stressed the special qualities of each individual's mind. They exalted the atypical, the outcast, the rebel. This attitude led on the one hand to the cult of the hero- the rebel in Coleridge- and on the other hand to the view of society as an evil force. The current of thought represented by Rosseau encouraged the notion that the convetions of civilitations, far from making life decent and worth living, represented intolerable restrictions on the individual personality and produced every kind of corrruption and evil. It followed that natural behaviour, that it so say, unrestrained and impulsive, is good, in contrast to behaviour which is governed by reason and by the rules and customs of society. The noble savage concept is specifically a Romantic one: the savage may appear primitive, but actually he has an instictive knowledge of himself and of the world often superior to that which has been acquired by civilised man.
Rousseau's theories also promoted cult of the exotic, of what is far away both in space and in time. The conventional European tour of the 18th century was replaced by the Romantic interest in travel as a challenge. Not only the picturesque and the formidable in scenery were welcomed, but also the remote and the unifamiliar in custom and social outlook. The remotest parts of Europe and the Near East had the appeal of being strange and unpredictable; danger and disaster, adventure and the inexplicable became symbols for other modes of human experience

Ciao!
In poche parole questo brano evidenzia come il romanticismo esalti ciò che è anormale, straordinario, solitario, ribelle... L'uomo nella sua solitudine assume un nuovo significato, al contrario dell'età precedenti in cui l'uomo veniva considerato un animale sociale, cioè un soggetto che aveva senso solo se inserito in una collettività. Invece, nel Romanticismo la società è considerata un limite, un artificio che modifica l'istinto dell'uomo: il selvaggio, colui che non è civilizzato, è al contrario naturale, istintivo e in un qualche modo superiore. L'esotico e il viaggiare diventano molto affascinanti per i romantici, perchè permettono di esplorare ciò che è sconosciuto, il pericolo, lo strano.
Spero che sia più chiaro, ciao! ;)
