Nathaniel Hawthorne's 'The Celestial Railroad' / Connection With American Culture
[ send me THIS essay ]
6 pages in length. Nathaniel Hawthorne's 'The Celestial Railroad' is indicative of American culture in that it utilizes the railroad as a means by which people aspired to achieve their dreams. The author's manner in presenting the manipulative ways humanity will go about chasing illusive fantasies is captured wholly and without reservation, with the railroad employed as its primary medium. The emergence of the railroad in regards to its history and place in American culture cannot be overlooked in the scheme of mankind's quest for the easy way out. Indeed, the railroad became symbolic of all things possible in one's lifetime, for it availed itself as a conduit between dreams and reality. Consequential to Hawthorne's 'The Celestial Railroad' is the fact that this particular aspect of American culture has not always been viewed in a positive light, but rather this never-ending journey toward quick and easy prosperity has often been plagued by shortsighted greed. The writer discusses American culture as it relates to Hawthorne's story. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

Romanticism and American Romanticism -- Nathaniel Hawthorne as an American Romantic
[ send me THIS essay ]
This 5 page report discusses romanticism in literature that is best personified in the works of English and some other European writers and poets of the period roughly encompassing 1775 to 1837. Wordsworth, Keats, Shelley, Malthus, and Austen are examples of the English tradition of Romanticism that immediately come to mind while one is likely to think of Coleridge, Hawthorne, and (to some degree) Thoreau and Emerson, when thinking of the American tradition of romanticism. There are certainly similarities, if for no other reason than the time frame in which the writing took place, between the traditions. But as with most aspects of a literary style, the nation in which it is conceived (logically) changes the context in which it is presented. Nathaniel Hawthorne is used as an example of American romanticism. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

Emerson's and Hawthorne's Rebellion
[ send me THIS essay ]
A 5 page paper discussing two statements: In comparing Hawthorne's statement of 'what we did had a consecration of its own—we felt it so' and Emerson's 'society everywhere is in conspiracy against the manhood of everyone of its members,' there is guilt present, either in barely perceptible tones or in crashing waves that color all of the aspects of life it does not obliterate. The comparison of the two original statements does have Romantic rebellion at their centers. The difference between them is that Hester Prynne, the fictional character, was the only one prepared to live her rebellion. Hester was more a 'man' than was either Emerson or Hawthorne.

It takes strength of character and an understanding of individual versus collective moral responsibility to resist the judging of others. Many people are guided to do right by a sense of guilt over actions they deem as wrong or 'sinful'. This 5 page paper argues that Nathaniel Hawthorne, through the short stories Young Goodman Brown and My Kinsman, Major Molineux has taken that precept one step further and shown that guilt concerning the condemnation of others should be a matter of personal and collective moral responsibility.

Hawthorne and Poe: The Mind Under the Influence
[ send me THIS essay ]
(5 pp.) Both of these American writers wanted to do more than entertain people; they wanted to influence how people thought, or how they perceived the world. My premise is that Hawthorne wanted to influence the conscious mind through parable or fable. Poe was more of a mental subterranean, and wanted to reach the unconscious mind, through the doorway of fear. The writer will examine Poe's stories, "The Tell-tale Heart" and "The Oval Portrait," and Hawthorne's short story, "Rappaccinni's Daughter", to determine if they fit the proposed premise. Bibliography lists 8 sources.
