If you were asked to explain the romantic period how would you describe it Beautiful Lovely Well to be honest the romantic period is far from beautiful It was often times very dark and mysterious Edgar Allen Poe Nathaniel Hawthorne and Washington Irving are just a few of the gothic and often times strange individuals that wrote during the romantic period But first what makes a good story that would fit in the romantic period Well to explain it in its simplest form you just need detail From the walls and pictures to the murder weapons and tone of the voice These are just a couple examples of what can make a story as sinister and wonderful as these authors have The stories written by Edgar Allen Poe Washington Irving and Nathaniel Hawthorne are not only different and gothic but also excellent Edgar Allen Poe was not only an evil and disturbing writer but also an evil and disturbing man He wrote stories such as the Black Cat and my personal favorite The Tell-Tale Heart He would use words such as dismembered and vulture that send chills up your spine He also used repetition very often Such as I moved over so slowly so slowly They seem to have gotten in your head and twisted things around He had a negative outlook on life obviously As eerie as his writing is he is still very creative and in my mind a genius Washington Irving was very much like Edgar Allen Poe He often wrote sinister and creepy words In his story The Devil and Tom Walker he expressed in detail the murder of his wife and his meeting with the devil His words were very powerful and breathe taking For example in his story he wrote Miserable horse whose ribs were as articulate as the bars of a gridiron It often leaves you in a negative mood with a feeling that floats over
