This article argues that Connecticut Wits were not just neo-classic, but rather, they were Romantic too. They blend the two literary styles together.

Here is an excerpt:

Clearly there were neoclassic elements in the poetry of the revolutionary writers of Connecticut; however, there were also elements of Romanticism, sometimes even in the same poem. In the fine art from Connecticut one will find themes, forms, and styles that are usually associated with Romantic art. For example, some of the Connecticut Wits wrote sonnets. The poetry in Connecticut displays enough Romantic style to refrain from referring to it as purely neoclassic. The Connecticut or Hartford Wits took the poetry in Connecticut slowly from neoclassic poetry to Romantic poetry. This thesis will analyze various poems by the Connecticut Wits, including the Minor Connecticut Wits, and show what is neoclassical about their poetry and what is Romantic about their poetry.
