>>>誰有美史考古題呀?
>>>   大放送一下!!!!

應觀眾要求,小女子我特地運用網路科技,將歷年來的考題 post給大家
希望大家都能 all pass!!

1. Discuss the ideology of American Romanticism (excluding
  Emerson's Transcendentalism) .  Perhaps at least three authors
  and their literature (choose one writing of poetry or short fiction 
  from each author) of this particular era to explain the ideology.
  Why are these writings so unique in themes, subject matters,
  Ideology, and philosophy that can be evaluated as romantic?  
  How close are these writings to the creation of the American 
  Myth?  From these Romantic writers, what are some of the
  themes and subjects matters, notably those that can be explicated
  as American spirit, value, and belief, to simply put-how to
  become a true American?  Explain.
2. Explain Emerson's Nature and poem, "Each and All," and the 
philosophy of Transcendentalism as he, Emerson, puts it, "I am 
nothing, I see all...I am part and particle of God."  To what end
is nature then?  Give specific examples.  Why does a 
Transcendentalism consider an anti-war activist and an 
environmentalprotectionist?  Any poem that you have read so 
far in the anthology suggest such ideas.  Give a brief account 
of your suggested exemplary.
3. How is Transcendentalism consider as American Romanticism?  
  And what is Transcendentalism?  Discuss briefly.  According to 
  Emerson, how does a man achieve Transcendentalism in Nature? 
  When he wrote, "I am a transparent eye-ball.  I am nothing.  
  I see all."  What does he mean?  What does Nature provide to 
  man when Emerson said, "Nature is a setting that fits equally well 
  a comic or a mourning piece."?  What does a child present? 
  Why does Emerson suggest that a man should be like a child? 
  What is wrong with a grown man then?  Explain.  What 
  specific concepts and feelings can a man absolve from Nature?  
  Give somedefinite examples of what Transcendentalism brings
  from Emerson's essay.  In what way does Transcendentalism 
  derive from Puritanism and express democracy?
4. Presenting through the unique style of poetry writing of 
Emily Dickinson and Walt Whitman, explicate two of 
Dickinson's "Death" poems with two of Whitman's "Procreation"
Poems (give the poems' title), in correction to why these poets
Employ such special poetic convention and what they are 
endeavoring to emphasize, to depict the differences of
conceptions between them such as doubts versus certainty, death 
versus life, and reality versus idealism.  How does Dickinson 
understand Nature?  Explain it with one of her poems.  Can 
she be categorized as a transcendentalism like Whitman?  Why
yes or no with instances of explanation?
5. Compare and contrast Hawthorne's "Rappaccini Daughter" to 
  Poe's "The Fall of the House of Usher" on the ideas or issues of 
  Divine Power, Nature Order, and Science.  What is the theme and
  Ideology behind these two authors that they wish to stress?  
  And how do they manifest it through the many characters appeared
  in these tales?  According to these tales, is Nature revengeful 
  and destructive towards mankind?  Why and how so?  Is such 
  ideology also found in Hawthorne's "Wakefield"?  What then?
  And through these three tales, what should human beings do to 
  balance the search for truth and responsibility?
6. How does Emerson explain Nature?  And how does a person 
  achieve Transcendentalism?  Compare Thoreau's basic 
  necessities to Emerson's idea of Transcendentalism and view 
  of Nature.  And how is Whitman's poetry (select two poems 
  to explicate) consider transcendental and yet different from 
  Emerson and Thoreau's Transcendentalism?  Explain with 
  examples.
7. Compare and contrast Hawthorne' "Rappaccini' Daughter" 
  with Poe' "The Fall of the House of Usher" on the idea of 
  creation, nature order, and the vanity of man.  According to 
  Hawthorne, what is beauty and love?  And according to Poe,
  What is fear and death?  And about death, how does Dickison
  View the subject?  Use two of her poems to discuss the issue.
