Romantic writers usually involve one or more of 7 different ideas associated with Romanticism in their writings. These ideas are: a profound love of nature; focus on the self and the individual; stress on emotion and not reason; fascination with the supernatural, mysterious and gothic; yearning for the picturesque, the exotic, and the misty past; deep-rooted idealism; passionate nationalism, or love of country. The stories and poems of Poe, Irving, Cooper, and Bryant involve these characteristics.
In ³The Fall of the House of Usher² an example of one of the 7 ideas is the mysterious atmosphere of the house and the people inside of it. In Bryants ³Thanatopsis² a profound love of nature is shown. The other stories focus on the individual, like in ³The Devil and Tom Walker². Tom is focused on his own personal gain no matter what it costs. He is faced with meeting the devil and you know the rest. These are just a few examples but through reading the stories you can find the rest.
