In the novel Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, if Romanticism is defined as being imaginative and emphasizing feelings, George's description of the farm emphasizes the imagination of what the farm will look like and what they will grow for crops or raise rabbits for Lennie. George also describes the feeling of being a landowner and no longer leading the lonely life of the migrant worker. Owning the land will solve all the problems he and Lennie have which also plays into the idea of the land being the romantic Eden where nothing goes wrong and the two friends are both happy.
