Romanticism became popular in American politics, philosophy, and art. The movement appealed to the revolutionary spirit of America as well as to those longing to break free of the strict religious traditions of the early settlement period. A foreign-news service was developed that reached the highest standard yet attained in American journalism in terms of intelligence and general excellence. This idea of the newspaper for its own sake, the unprecedented aggressiveness in news-gathering, and the blatant methods by which the cheap papers were popularized, aroused the antagonism of the older papers, but created a competition that could not be ignored.

LITERATURE OF THE GERMANIC TRIBES The Germanic tribes had a literature, but it was not written down. The stories and poems they made up were repeated and remembered. The Germanic tribes were fond of poetry. The monasteries where the art of reading and writing was practised became the centres of almost all the learning and education in the country. No wonder many poets and writers imitated those Latin books about the early Christians, and they also made up many stories of their own aboiit saints. Though the poets were English, they had to write in Latin.

American literature and the early american academy . Book-length collections of American literature marketed for the general public in the late nineteenth century also played a crucial role in shifting academic critical attitudes toward American writers. Although these large collections had been popular with American readers since the mid-1800s, colleges only gradually adopted this anthology format in the classroom. Each volume in the series featured the work of a single writer, providing the public with affordable collections of American literature and providing American literary art with its long-deserved sense of cultural legitimacy.

Kennikat Press [Published date: 1942, 1969]. Hard cover, 421 pp. Reprint. [Excerpt from Introduction] YOUNG AMERICAN art students in the Nineties had two eminent countrymen whom they might emulate. One was John Singer Sargent, a transatlantic portraitist who had become court painter to the rich. Estimable and proficient, he compelled attention wherever he went and was never at a loss for a commission. Surely the attractions of such a career were apparent. James McNeill Whistler had other recommendations. A butterfly turned hornet, he had stung the very people Mr. Sargent celebrated and he had antagonized more often than he had ingratiated. Long before, he had captured the French, and although later he would often suffer insecurity, he had at least one satisfaction-that he never lost the admiration of the sensitive. Students admire the challenger, and in this sense, certainly, they could follow Whistler. Yet, in either case, they did have a model, and an American one at that. The same could not be said for preceding generations of American painters. Before the Civil War, they could turn only to the itinerant portrait painter, who was in most cases but a Yankee peddler with a less disagreeable occupation. (Surely they could not esteem thoseAmericans who had abandoned themselves to the Court of St. James.) After the Civil War, only Europe beckoned.
