Transcript of The Romantic Era

Beauty of Nature & Loneliness The Romantic Era Beauty of Nature "To him who in the love of Nature holds Communion with her visible forms, she speaks
A various language; for his gayer hours
She has a voice of gladness, and a smile
And eloquence of beauty, and she glides Into his darker musings, with a mild And gentle sympathy, that steals away Their sharpness, ere he is aware." - "Thanatopsis" William Cullen Bryant Loneliness "'Do not desert me, though this veil must be between us here on earth. Be mine, and hereafter there shall be no veil over my face, no darkness between our souls! It is but a mortal veil--it is not for eternity! O! you know not how lonely I am, and how frightened, to be alone behind my black veil.'" "The Minister's Black Veil" by Nathaniel Hawthorne American Romantic Art These two images represent nature and loneliness perfectly because they both show the power and beauty of nature as well as a sort of feeling of loneliness.
The Fishermen at Sea demonstrates isolation through the ship on the middle of the ocean while nature provides a light shining down on the voyagers.
In the Childhood, although the child seems to be isolated on an island, the stream seems to be pulling the child forward. A beautiful scenery is also provided. Marta Lopez "Thanatopsis" perfectly demonstrates the beauty of nature as Bryant displays her as a loving sensation that is beautious in all aspects. She brings happiness when you are down and makes you happier when you already are. "The Minister's Black Veil" does a great job of demonstrating the loneliness humans feel. This quote explains how sin isolates individuals so that they break away from others because they suffer at the thought of their sins. Yet, he gives hope in that sin is not eternal because life is not eternal and he won't be lonesome forever. "Childhood" by Cole "Fishermen at Sea" by JMW Turner
