English & Literature

"The historical period 1800–1865 produced the romantic movement in literature, which was characterized by sentimentalism, a reverence for nature, and individualism. Write an analytical essay examining how these beliefs influenced literature."

This is the question. I am unclear how to answer it. How should I form my thesis, and what should my outline be? What should the thesis be? I am genuinly lost on how to attemp this question. Our teacher did not teach us much about this topic. All I know is that romanticism pertains to individualism and the common man; and includes writers like Edgar Allan Poe, Emily Dickinson, Herman Meville, and Nathanial Hawthorne. Help!
