American literature thesis topics

Edgar Allan Poe wrote a story, " Never Bet the Devil Your Head " (1841), in which he embedded elements of deep dislike for transcendentalism, calling its followers "Frogpondians" after the pond on Boston Common . [34] The narrator ridiculed their writings by calling them "metaphor-run" lapsing into "mysticism for mysticism's sake", [35] and called it a "disease." The story specifically mentions the movement and its flagship journal The Dial , though Poe denied that he had any specific targets. [36] In Poe's essay " The Philosophy of Composition " (1846), he offers criticism denouncing "the excess of the suggested meaning... which turns into prose (and that of the very flattest kind) the so-called poetry of the so-called transcendentalists." [37]
