American Romanticism

A study of literature as a reflection of social and cultural changes occurring from the 1830s through the 1860s. Attention to both the most famous traditional "romantics" (Poe, Emerson, Thoreau, Hawthorne, Melville, and Whitman) and to the important "minority" writers whose works, published in the same period, helped to change the tradition (Fuller, Douglass, Truth, Stowe, Jacobs, and others).
