1927. Part Two of Three. The Romantic Revolution in America covers the period from 1620 to 1800. Discusses: Delimitations of period; romance, and economic change; differentiating imperialisms of East, South, West; romantic philosophies: Physiocratic agrarianism, French equalitarianism, English laissez faire; a counter-philosophy-slavery and a Greek democracy. The effects of the Civil War on earlier romanticisms; destruction of the slave economy; strengthening of the rival agrarian and capitalistic economies. Certain anachronisms-eighteenth-century liberalism; local home rule-submerged by movement of consolidation. Romantic literary schools became obsolete. The sovereignty of the middle class and the mergence of realistic criticism. A wonderful account of the genesis and development in American letters of certain germinal ideas that have come to be reckoned traditionally American-how they came into being here, how they were opposed, and what influence they have exerted in determining the form and scope of our ideals and institutions.
