For hundreds of years, humans have created monuments and memorials in order to honor someone or a special event. The United States has hundreds of monuments and memorials dedicated to not only people, but events too, one being The Statue of Liberty.

INTRODUCTION The idea of the American Modernist houses came from European architects (Spark 2008:186; Jordi 1963:177-187) that developed European theories of Modernism in the United States. Therefore architects like Philip Johnson, played a major role in introducing the works of Mies van der Rohe, Walter Gropius or Le Corbusier into the American society and architecture (Goldberger 2005). This Modernist built structures were characterized by the “open-planning and transparency and commitment to the spatial continuity between the outsides and the insides of the building” (Spark 2008:141). In addition, Modernist architects embraced the idea of the standardization of objects by means of mass production, that would produce exact replicas of items. (Spark 2008:147) Philip Johnson (1906-2005) built The Glass House and its counterpart, the Guest House, in a piece of land of his property in New Cannan (Connecticut), as his own residence.

The story “Rip Van Winkle” by Washington Irving is a moral allegory; a story that represents an abstract or spiritual but is portrayed in a literal way. “Rip Van Winkle” is a tale that is comprised of multiple abstract and hidden meanings, which are all cloaked by material forms. Irving’s use of setting, symbolism, and characterization help to produce a tale that intertwines mysticism with history. Together these create a deeper meaning behind the life of a simple man oppressed by his wife, truly standing as a symbol for the ruling of the British crown over the Thirteen Colonies. The story “Rip Van Winkle” relies heavily on the use of setting in order to facilitate readers with the process of understanding how the story connects to the American Revolutionary War.
Not to mention how the entirety of the title is a metaphor, little additions and comparisons strategically placed by Hawthorn expose readers to the much deeper meaning to each of the scenes. It is amazing to see Hawthorne’s ability to use metaphor in beautiful ways, such as comparing children to flowers, as well as dark serious ways, such as Chillingworth’s resemblance to Satan. As previously mentioned, there is high importance placed on the underlying meanings of the natural world within the novel. Comparisons to season such as Spring represent growth and plentifulness all while Hawthorne is not afraid to represent suffering and death through relation to the decay or a garden once abandoned. It is common for Hawthorne to use people on the other ends of a metaphor in order to give insight into their true personalities.
