is a response to Neoclassicism
but it was a mixture of many emotions such as: TELL me not, in mournful numbers,
Life is but an empty dream ! —
For the soul is dead that slumbers,
And things are not what they seem.
Life is real ! Life is earnest!
And the grave is not its goal ;
Dust thou art, to dust returnest,
Was not spoken of the soul.
Not enjoyment, and not sorrow,
Is our destined end or way ;
But to act, that each to-morrow
Find us farther than to-day.
Art is long, and Time is fleeting,
And our hearts, though stout and brave,
Still, like muffled drums, are beating
Funeral marches to the grave. A psalm of life has the general ideals of Romanticism as it applies a deep emphasis on emotion and life. Appeals to human emotion because Hester Prynne has to carry the burden of the Scarlet Letter alone. The novel includes the topics of: gloom, horror, and mystery. Hawthorne explores the themes of guilt, retribution, and atonement.
In Hawthorne's novel, he confronts the moral and emotional experience of magic. The theme deals with a collection of short stories that all tie in with the same theme which is dark and Gothic Edgar Allan Poe
master at the use of suspense and horror.
-The Fall of the House of Usher
-The Tell-Tale Heart Nathaniel Hawthorne Most memorable for short stories that emphasize complexity of moral choices.
-The Scarlet Letter http://teachertube.com/viewVideo.php?video_id=251203 Hawthorne's theme constantly revolves around guilt sin and evil which to him are the inherent natural qualities of human nature which perfectly fits into the dark, Gothic and greatly exaggerated Romanticism I.
In the greenest of our valleys,
By good angels tenanted,
Once a fair and stately palace -
Radiant palace - reared its head.
In the monarch Thought's dominion -
It stood there !
Never seraph spread a pinion
Over fabric half so fair.
Banners yellow, glorious, golden,
On its roof did float and flow;
(This - all this - was in the olden
Time long ago)
And every gentle air that dallied,
In that sweet day,
Along the ramparts plumed and pallid,
A winged odor went away.
Wanderers in that happy valley
Through two luminous windows saw
Spirits moving musically
To a lute's well-tunéd law,
Round about a throne, where sitting
In state his glory well befitting,
The ruler of the realm was seen.
And all with pearl and ruby glowing
Was the fair palace door,
Through which came flowing, flowing, flowing,
And sparkling evermore,
A troop of Echoes whose sweet duty
Was but to sing,
In voices of surpassing beauty,
The wit and wisdom of their king. V.
But evil things, in robes of sorrow,
Assailed the monarch's high estate ;
(Ah, let us mourn, for never morrow
Shall dawn upon him, desolate !)
And, round about his home, the glory
That blushed and bloomed
Is but a dim-remembered story
Of the old time entombed.
And travellers now within that valley,
Through the red-litten windows, see
Vast forms that move fantastically
To a discordant melody ;
While, like a rapid ghastly river,
Through the pale door,
A hideous throng rush out forever,
And laugh - but smile no more. In the world's broad field of battle,
In the bivouac of Life,
Be not like dumb, driven cattle !
Be a hero in the strife !
Trust no Future, howe'er pleasant !
Let the dead Past bury its dead !
Act,— act in the living Present !
Heart within, and God o'erhead !
Lives of great men all remind us
We can make our lives sublime,
And, departing, leave behind us
Footprints on the sands of time ;
Footprints, that perhaps another,
Sailing o'er life's solemn main,
A forlorn and shipwrecked brother,
Seeing, shall take heart again.
Let us, then, be up and doing,
With a heart for any fate ;
Still achieving, still pursuing,
Learn to labor and to wait. Henry Wadsworh Longfellow interprets the human life as a great journey that will have a positive ending even though life is to be thought as difficult by most romantic writers during this time period. The Fall of the House of Usher -The Minister's Black Veil Emotion
