This sentence exemplifies one of the most notorious themes of the Romantic era: namely, the importance and integrity of personal feeling as a function of identity. Instead of receiving one's identity from an overarching, impersonal narrative or cultural habituation, the Romantics usually understood themselves to be human only insofar as their emotions flowed.
