Topic: Romantic & Gothic Lit
Level: Applying and Synthesizing
A period in American literature that began in 1800 (or so) and lasted until 1860. Emphasized the value of the common individual, common language, emotion, hope, and a closeness to nature. Poe, Hawthorne, and Melville represent the movement.
An offshoot of Romanticism—a special kind of romanticism: the flip side. Hope is turned to EXPECTATIONS OF EVIL. Nature turns into the dark side of the SUPERNATURAL.
