Stories of passion such as, Evona Darling written by Silas House and My Ex-Husband written by Gabriel Spera, are both examples of stories that give the reader the equation of love and hate entwined together with the tainted sense of reality. House descriptively writes a story about the passion of a mother’s love whose heart has been taken away by her child’s father, who through suspicious friends got Evona’s custody stripped away from her.

Northanger Abbey was the first completed novel by Jane Austen, one of the most famous novelists of the early 19th century and British novelists in general. Austen is known for her social commentary, as well as romance, for which some of her works like Pride and Prejudice or Sense and Sensibility are popular even today.

In the midst of the Romantic period, specifically the year 1850, author Nathaniel Hawthorne published one of the most beautifully detailed and awe-inspiring books of the 18th century, The Scarlet Letter. This book, although a bit risque for its time period, became a popular novel all over the world due to its intricate use of symbols and themes. From the simplest items such as a prison to more complex concepts such as self-punishment, Hawthorne was able to brilliantly interweave these ideas throughout the entire book, ultimately creating a beautifully written story. Hawthorne was also able to capture his audience’s interest by centering the plot around an affair involving one of the most religious reverends within the town. Due to the extremely religious society that Hawthorne lived in, the book was a very risky move to make since it so harshly criticized the Puritan religion and its followers.

The moors provide a place for Brontë to isolate and magnify the characters as a small community, then she uses the manors to explain each character individually. The Wuthering Heights manor is dark and demonic with the weather having a winter lasting three times longer as summer. On the other hand, Thrushcross Grange is described as calm and refined with a summer that is very mild and sunny.
