romantic novel (fwd)

For an instructive and amusing examination of the vague term "romanticism"
and its sundry conno- and denotations, see VN's commentary to Eugene Onegin
, v. 3, pp. 32-37.

I realize this is not precisely what Dieter Zimmer was talking about, but
Nabokov's views on romanticism as stated here might be helpful nonetheless.
