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
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.
See, I am not a star. I am just me
That is all I want to be
You are the star that I believe
'Cause I can feel you in me...
