Studying the Romantic Era in American Literature? You can't miss out on this bundle! Compare dark stories such as "The Black Cat," "The Tell-Tale Heart," "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow," and the poem, "The Raven." AND compare texts such as "Self-Reliance," "Civil Disobedience," "Nature," and "Walden." Not only will students be looking for elements and textual evidence, then there are two writing activities for each kind of writing from the era.
