When a popular world-view coincides with what the authors of that age write about, in theme and style, a new literary movement begins. All three of the stories which dominate this topic is a combination of two literary movements that occurred at the same time, in the mid-nineteenth century and early twentieth century. These literary movements were called Naturalism and Realism, not the most differing movements but with some key differences.

Moreover, in his article Mendelsohn mentions how another version of the same poem had included additional lines that added a “triumphant assertion of the power of beauty, of the “finer things”—of poetry itself” (77) to the poem’s ending. These lines completely change the tone and feel, and give the poem a more powerful and appreciative, up lifting tone. The difference in the ending compared to the new version of “Old Age Poem” displays how small changes in a primary source can influence the audience’s viewpoint.

Poetry is a piece of literature where the author shares his ideas of a subject or person. He is attempting to allow the reader an understanding of his feelings regarding this subject. Most of the time poetry can be very pleasing to the ear; however, at times it can be written in a manner that is odd. Some poetry is written in a way that the reader can “hear”, “feel”, “see” or “taste” elements in the poem. Some poems may rhyme while others may not need to in order to convey the message.
Two examples of Romantic poets are Edgar Allan Poe and Emily Dickinson, whose writing exemplifies the Romantic theme of individuality, or the divergence from traditional societal norms and beliefs. The poems “A Dream Within A Dream,” by Edgar Allan Poe, and “Much Madness is Divinest Sense,” by Emily Dickinson perfectly display this theme of individuality. Within these poems, one can see both the similarities and differences regarding the theme, numerous elements of Romanticism such as individualism, imagination, and insight, the impact the theme has on societal norms, and the timelessness of the theme by being incorporated into modern day culture. To begin, there are many similarities to be found within “A Dream Within A Dream” and “Much Madness Is Divinest Sense”. The most prevalent similarity between the two is the theme.

The Gilded Age consisted of a time of tremendous change in social and economic growth for the United States of America. Americans witnessed a rapid growth in industrialization, urbanization, transcontinental railroad construction, science and technology, and large business corporations.

The “Gilded Age”, a.k.a the Post Civil War Progressive Era, was the name given by Mark Twain in the period 1865-1896 which indicated the wealth and the widespread corruption of the era. The “Gilded Age” witnessed new cultural and intellectual movements as well as political debates over ecomonic and social policies from five different forgettable presidents. The president of the “Gilded Age” who serves as the best, in my opinion, was Grover Cleveland.

He appealed to middle class voters of both parties as someone who would fight corruption and big-money interests.
