Romanticism wrap up in English

The man approached the man and saw there was a huge hole in the wall. The wall opposite it had a hole in it that seemed to connect heaven and hell. The floor was covered with pieces from the wall. The couches were covered with the torn curtains of the house. Many pieces of the wall of the wall took the places on the couch where the film used to sit and talk. The light filled the room from the sky and ollumated the room to revel the ruins.It was a scene of apolptic meansures. The silence filled the room and the man felt disturbed. This imagery is evident in Edgar Allen Poe. Poe said, “It was a mere head and shoulders, done in what is technically termed a vignette manner; much in the style of the favorite heads of Sully. The arms, the bosom, and even the ends of the radiant hair melted imperceptibly into the vague yet deep shadow which formed the fondo of the whole. The frame was oval, richly gilded and filigreed in Moresque” (The Oval Portrait). Poes is very descriptive. This imagery is very common in Romanticism.

The silence is evident in this photo. There is no life. No people. There are ruins of the house.The house was destroyed in the war.  Romantic authors do not like war. The silence is also present in “El Monte de las ánimas”, “Ambos guardaban hacía rato un profundo silencio,” (Bécquer). The silence is in this stories as well as many others. Silence is frequently bad, as in this case. Also as in this picture.

Also romantic writers lie to used light to represent light as bigger tings. This is evident in this photo. The light is portrayed as as the light of the gods, the salvation this is about the house. In romanticism god is very important.  A higher power is always present.

Innocence is present in this picture. The people’s house was destroyed. The kids have no place to to call home.Their innocence is destroyed .This is as Alonso. He had his innocence before Beatriz said that he had to recover her scarf.  For this, Alonso had much fear but he wanted to impress her and he went to the mountain of souls. He died and lost his innocence.

Isolation is also found in this picture. There are no people, houses, rooms, nor furniture around. The room is alone. Manrique is also alone, «En cualquiera parte estara, menos en donde este todo el mundo. En efecto, Manrique amaba la soledad,» ( El Rayo de luna 150). Manrique is always alone. He is an individual. But, Manrique also suffers from isolation.

Romantic traits are evident in this photo . There silenco , a divine power, and isolation  like in the legends of Becquer and Poe or Hawthorne.

  1. Katrina, me gusta tu ensayo sobre el Romanticismo. La descripción de la foto es rigurosa y conectas su foto, el Romanticismo, y los cuentos de la clase bien. Tu mensaje es fuerte sin embargo, y el ensayo en general es muy bien.
