Product Description
American Romanticism was an American artistic and literary movement of the late 18th and early 19th centuries.

This is a high quality, innovative, image-rich PowerPoint presentation that serves as an introduction to the American Romantic literary movement.

The presentation focuses on American Romanticism as a reaction to the evils of the industrial revolution and puritanical religious traditions. The contributions of the major American Romantic writers are covered.

Edgar Allen Poe
Walt Whitman
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Nathanial Hawthorne
Emily Dickinson
Henry David Thoreau

The presentation also introduces and explains the notion of transcendence, and how American romantic writers believed transcendence could be achieved through writing, thought, and action in the following realms:

Through Nature
Connecting with nature is the way to rise above mundane life.

Through Optimism
Looking forward to a prosperous future is a way to transcend the drudgeries of daily life.

Through Civil Resistance
Peaceful, organized resistance to unjust laws is the way to rise above.

Through Fear
Exploring our dark side is the path to deeper understanding of life.
