Final Exam Humanities Wallman

1) 1. If you were a transcendentalist you sought to discover the transcendent order of nature. What does that mean? The answers are on page 256-258, not in the Romantic Worldview Chapter. : That basically means you extend the limits beyond the ordinary like in a forest in nature’s example, you reached out to your spirituality, to “awaken” the power of the individual through god and the Holy Spirit. Also to embrace the “grace” of nature itself, be one with yourself and reflect on one’s own intellect through your individuality.
2) 2. What is Romanticism? How do Romantics approach the world around them, base their opinions, and draw inspiration for their creativity? : The Way of the individual, a movement where the emphasis of emotion, individualistic glo-rification, and the “embrace” of nature was the center of this notion. Focusing on the sub-lime, the beautiful, and the aesthetic. The Romantics approach the world on the notion of the art of life, the inner beauty, and the true incarnation of emotion. Leaving the factual and logical side of things, Romantics view the world through art, style, beauty, elegance, etc…
3) Read Wordsworth’s poem “Lines Composed a Few Miles above Tintern Abbey, on Revisiting the Banks of the River Wye during a Tour, July 13, 1798, and be able to discuss the role of nature in the poem. : Nature takes the role of a reminder to past life, a place of sad peacefulness, docile and quiet, show-ing the sublime all around you from the quiet sky to the trees but also through emotional unrest. Also a memory or reminder of the sad childhood/boyhood that reminisces in the mind. The sounds of harmony calm the sadness down but the memories still linger in solitude
4) 5. Read John Keats’ “Ode on a Grecian Urn.” How does the urn inspire Romantic poetry? Think about your answer to questions 1-3 when coming up with your answer. Cite examples. : The urn itself depicts a story involving gods, men or human figures chasing women through the forest and everyone on the urn looks happy. The man is frozen in time (in his prime) as he is chasing the girl as a great moment of his life. The simple frozen moment reflects the man in his prime in a great moment for the rest of eternity.
5) Compare Constable’s Hay Wain to Turner’s The Upper Falls of the Reichenbach. How are these works different from one another yet both classified as Romantic paintings? : To Constable’s Hay wain, it is close and very familiar and to Turner’s Upper falls, it looks exotic and alienating. In The Upper Falls of Reichenbach, the man is very small compared to the vast scene of the falls. In Hay Wain, the landscape looks identifiable, common and familiar like the hobby of collecting duck eggs or finding eggs for snacks as opposed to visiting a harmonious landscape (which isn't done every day) ( it can be linked to other types of memories, moments, etc…) Constable works on the common scene while Turner works on the exotic scene
