During the age of Romanticism the Fireside Poets stood as the popular entertainment of that time period. Longfellow! Bryant! Holmes! Lowell! Whittier! In this visually exciting PowerPoint, I attempt to make a small connection between the rock stars of today with these literary giants. Included in this PPT is a thorough background on the Fireside Poets, individual background information on each poet, and at least 1 poem analytically broken down for each of the 5 fireside poets! This took me quite a bit of time to complete, and I am pleased with the results!
