1) No; the romantics are not biologists – they do not advocate for anyone to “study” nature; what source are you relying to on this idea? Rethink please.
2) The role of nature is important, but its role is quite different than some may assume – also do not think that they “accepted” the beauty of nature; rethink please. And, review our texts; questions?
3) RETHING YOUR INTRODUCTION – IT SEEMS THAT YOU ARE NOT ON A STRONG POSITION
4) Which text by Emerson are you addressing in your first body paragraph?
5) Be very careful on your quotes…
6) am not clear on your paraphrase of the quote by Emerson
7) THINK YOU ARE ON THE A FIRM GROUND WHEN YOU RELATD ‘NATURE’ TO ‘INDIVIDUALISM’ – BUT BOTH IDEAS ARE COMPLEX IN THEIR INTERACTION AND PURPOSE; QUESTIONS????????
8) Since Herman Melville is also a romantic author of practically the same era, his work also addresses ideas that relate back to Emerson. His most famous novel is Moby Dick – where the white whale exposes the threat nature has to certainty about ourselves in the universe. Humanity cannot conquer the essences of reality through nature, unlike Emerson – optimistically – thought.
This perspective takes us to Confidence Man – where the making of a bounty hunter exposes the limits of humanity gaining spiritual enlightenment via nature.
SINCE WE DID NOT READ ANY PART OF MOBY DICK IN THIS CLASS, HOLD BACK FROM STATING ANYTHIING ABOUT THIS NOVEL.
INSTEAD, TRY TO ADDRESS HIS WORK Confidence Man
