Earliest American Literature to the Romantic Era

Earliest Literature to 1800:

Native Americans

Puritan and Colonial Literature

American Romanticism (1800 – 1860)

slide4

History of Romanticism

(1800-1830)

A number of changing attitudes related to a sense of nationalism—a devotion to one’s nation or patriotism—not a philosophy yet

slide5

The romantics’ emphasis on the individual reflects the political ideal set forth in the Declaration of Independence that “all men are created equal.”

  • This new emphasis leads to a new focus on the dignity and worth of the common individual and to social reforms that were meant to fulfill this ideal of equality.
slide6

Romantic Literature and Attitudes:

Romantics were mostly interested in the expression of their own intuitive experiences.

slide7

Subjects characteristic of Romantic attitudes:

    • NATURE
    • THE PAST
    • THE INNER WORLD OF HUMAN NATURE
slide8

Subjects characteristic of Romantic attitudes:

  • NATURE: Romantics emphasized the beauty, strangeness, and the mystery of nature. As opposed to the rational laws of the realists/rationalists
    • They saw nature not as a machine, but as an organic process, constantly developing and changing.
    • They placed emphasis on the organic connection between the human imagination and the natural world.
    • The mystery and grandeur of the vast and still unknown land were part of their heritage and a powerful influence on their imaginations.
slide9

Subjects characteristic of Romantic attitudes:

THE PAST:

The rise of nationalism brought with it a new interest in the American past.

American literature gradually developed a sense of a national past and of an emerging national character.

slide10

Subjects characteristic of Romantic attitudes:

THE INNER WORLD OF HUMAN NATURE:

Romantics emphasized the emotions, intuition, and the individual and thus encouraged the exploration and the expression of the writer’s most private inner being.

Romantic writers became interested in the irrational depths of human nature.

slide11

The American Romantic writers had found in Romanticism a new way of expressing their experiences as Americans. In this process, they expressed the nationalistic spirit of the age and created a truly significant national literature.
