Sunday Morning: The Beauty of Death

- The title of Wallace Stevens' poem "Sunday Morning" could not be a better title. Sundays to Christian religions are considered holy days, days to go to church and worship God. To write about a woman rebelling against the ritual of going to church and describing the sensualities of the natural world, and posing the question why is heaven better than what we have on Earth, is brilliant. In the poem, the woman compares and explores two ideas on life: one that is eternal, and one that is not. The poem witnesses the woman's search for spiritual fulfillment....   [tags: Poetry]

- Transcendentalism, a spiritual, philosophical, and literary movement, flourished during the mid-nineteenth century in response to a major disagreement within the Unitarian Church. Boston ministers at the time thought that the church was too conservative, so they established a new philosophy honoring individual wisdom over religion. Although this philosophy, Transcendentalism, received its inspiration from European Romanticism, it became a unique American movement emphasizing individualism. Indeed, with the rampant materialism stemming from the Industrial Revolution, many Transcendentalists encouraged individuals to seek a solitary and harmonious relationship with nature....   [tags: Language, Religion, Nature]
