Neoclassicism and Romanticism are two types of artistic and intellectual or literary movements in the early centuries. Neoclassicism as a movement in literature started in 1660 and lasted till 1798. Neoclassicism was structured on classical themes, especially ones that reflect the styles of the ancient Greek and Roman authors.

The neoclassical literature written by authors of this period had features such as objectivity, simplicity, restraint, order, logic. This period can also be divided into three different stages, i.e., the Restoration age, the Augustan age, and the Age of Johnson. On the other hand, romanticism represents a period that originated in Europe toward the end of the 18th century.

It is an artistic and literary movement that was based on freedom, emotion, and individual imagination. This is different from neoclassicism that was based on objectivity, i.e., an artistic work that is not influenced by emotions. The writers of this period were influenced by the artistic works in the medieval era.
