Puritan or Romantic? Puritan or Romantic? Puritan or Romantic? Puritan or Romantic? Puritan or Romantic? Puritan or Romantic? Get in groups of three.
As a team, you will try to identify whether the given quotes are from Puritans or Romantics. At the end of a minute, your group will be asked to decide by holding up a piece of paper.
If your group thinks the quote is from a Puritan, you will hold up a white blank piece of paper.
If your group thinks the quote is from a Romantic, you will hold up the colored piece of paper.
We will then talk about what led your group to that decision. "No law can be sacred to me
except that of my own nature." --Ralph Waldo Emerson, Romantic "But though this had been a night of much hardship and danger, God gave them a morning of comfort and refreshment, as He usually doth to His children; for the next day was a fair sun-shining day, and they were on an island secure from the Indians, where they could dry their stuff, fix their arms, and rest themselves and give God thanks for His mercies in their manifold deliverances." --William Bradford, Puritan "Trust your instinct to the end, though you can render no reason. " Ralph Waldo Emerson, Romantic "We will walk on our own feet;
we will work with our own hands;
we will speak our own minds." Ralph Waldo Emerson, Romantic “We must delight in each other, make others conditions our own, rejoice together, mourn together, labor and suffer together, always having before our eyes our commission and community in the work, our community as members of the same body.” John Winthrop, Puritan Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined. Henry David Thoreau, Romantic As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler; solitude will not be solitude, poverty will not be poverty, nor weakness weakness. Henry David Thoreau, Romantic The world no longer let me love. My hope and treasure lies above. Anne Bradstreet, Puritan "Your very flesh shall be a great poem." Walt Whitman, Romantic “All truth is given by revelation, either general or special, and it must be received by reason." Jonathan Edwards, Puritan Your Turn... You and your group are starting to realize some of the distinctive aspects of Romantic thought. Now, your group will use that knowledge to create a Romantic quote of your own. Try to use the same style and tone of those quotes we were just looking at. Limit this quote to a maximum of three sentences. We will be using these quotes to play a game, so don't let any other group hear your completed quote. Make your quote as good as possible to give your group a shot at winning! Be sure to incorporate the following phrase... if one advances confidently
in the direction of his dreams... The real quote is... "I learned this, at least, by my experiment: that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he had imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours." Henry David Thoreau Romantic Influences on Modern Culture As a group, analyze your song and answer the following questions. Please have someone write your answers down. Pick someone else to "teach the class" about the Romantic aspects of your song.
What is the name of your song? Who sings it? What is it about?
Which of the "Six I's" do you see in your song, and where do you see them? Point to specific lines.
Are there any aspects of your song which remind you of any of the quotes we have already looked at?
Are there any parts of the song that seem to contradict the notions of Romantic thought? Create a Quote: Take Two Use the following phrase to write a 1 to 3 sentence quote which captures Romantic ideas... Do not go where the path may lead...
