What is DARK ROMANTICISM? What does DARK ROMANTICISM mean? DARK ROMANTICISM meaning - DARK ROMANTICISM definition - DARK ROMANTICISM explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Dark romanticism (often conflated with Gothicism) is a literary subgenre of Romanticism. From its very inception in the late eighteenth century, Romanticism's celebration of euphoria and sublimity had been dogged by an equally intense fascination with melancholia, insanity, crime, the grotesque, and the irrational. The name “Dark Romanticism” was given to this form by the literary theorist Mario Praz in his lengthy study of the genre published in 1930, ‘’The Romantic Agony’’. According to the critic G. R. Thompson, “the Dark Romantics adapted images of anthropomorphized evil in the form of Satan, devils, ghosts, werewolves, vampires, and ghouls” as emblematic of human nature. Thompson sums up the characteristics of the subgenre, writing: Fallen man's inability fully to comprehend haunting reminders of another, supernatural realm that yet seemed not to exist, the constant perplexity of inexplicable and vastly metaphysical phenomena, a propensity for seemingly perverse or evil moral choices that had no firm or fixed measure or rule, and a sense of nameless guilt combined with a suspicion the external world was a delusive projection of the mind--these were major elements in the vision of man the Dark Romantics opposed to the mainstream of Romantic thought. Elements of dark romanticism were a perennial possibility within the broader international movement Romanticism, in both literature and art. Like romanticism itself, dark romanticism arguably began in Germany, with writers such as E. T. A. Hoffmann, Christian Heinrich Spiess, and Ludwig Tieck – though their emphasis on existential alienation, the demonic in sex, and the uncanny, was offset at the same time by the more homely cult of Biedermeier. British authors such as Lord Byron, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Mary Shelley, and John William Polidori, who are frequently linked to Gothic fiction, are also sometimes referred to as Dark Romantics. Their tales and poems commonly feature outcasts from society, personal torment and uncertainty as to whether the nature of man will bring him salvation or destruction. Some Victorian authors of English horror fiction, such as Bram Stoker and Daphne du Maurier, follow in this lineage. The American form of this sensibility centered on the writers Edgar Allan Poe, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Herman Melville. As opposed to the perfectionist beliefs of Transcendentalism, these darker contemporaries emphasized human fallibility and proneness to sin and self-destruction, as well as the difficulties inherent in attempts at social reform. French authors such as Jules Barbey d’Aurevilly, Charles Baudelaire, Paul Verlaine and Arthur Rimbaud echoed the dark themes found in the German and English literature. Baudelaire was one of the first French writers to admire Edgar Allan Poe, but this admiration or even adulation of Poe became widespread in French literary circles in the late 19th century. Twentieth-century existential novels have also been linked to dark romanticism, as too have the sword and sorcery novels of Robert E. Howard. Northrop Frye pointed to the dangers of the demonic myth making of the dark side of romanticism as seeming “to provide all the disadvantages of superstition with none of the advantages of religion”.

The Most Dangerous Game by Richard Connell (Summary and Review) - Minute Book Report
This is a quick summary and analysis of The Most Dangerous Game by Richard Connell. Facebook Page - https://www.facebook.com/pages/Minute-Book-Reports/1148331925195691 This is a story about a man named Rainsford, an expert in hunting jaguar, who falls off a boat and is left on a deserted island in the Caribbean. Rainsford discovers that the island is not deserted, as a man named General Zaroff and his assistant, Ivan, live there in an elaborate mansion. Over dinner, Zaroff shares that he too likes to hunt, but has grown tired of hunting animals. Instead, he likes to hunt human with a revolver. Rainsford is appalled and wants to get off the island. Zaroff says that he will let Rainsford go free if he can survive three days on the island as his game. Rainsford is given food and a knife and heads out into the jungle. He tries to create loops and double backs, eventually hiding in a tree. However, Zaroff is too smart and finds Rainsford’s hiding spot, but without stopping the hunt, he lets Rainsford go for another day. Rainsford decides to build a trap with sharp sticks hidden in a pit. However, Zaroff is aware of the trap and it only claims his dog. On the third day, Zaroff releases his hounds and pursues Rainsford to the edge of the island. Ivan is killed by a knife trap and Rainsford is forced to jump into the ocean to escape the hounds. Disappointed, Zaroff returns home. In the end, as Zaroff is about to go to bed, Rainsford appears in his bedroom and kills him. As always, a lot can be said about this story, but what draws my interest and attention is the idea that humans are the only species that can use reason and it's this ability to reason that makes us the most dangerous game in the world. As Zaroff outlines to Rainsford and the reader how he came to hunting human, he reveals that it is the ability to reason that gives human beings the ultimate survival mind. We’re both selfish and creative, which allows us to come up with some interesting ideas and behaviors. Generally speaking, a hunter will hunt and the game will run and hide. The game will continue to run until it feels it is safe, but it never really reasons that it could probably turn around and fight back, unless, of course, it’s cornered. But the entire time, its instinct guides it to run away. It can never reason and critically evaluate the situation, changing it’s course to perhaps try a different strategy. Humans are capable of doing this and we see this through Rainsford during the hunt. On the first day of the hunt, Rainsford acts like game; he just runs and hides. However, by the second day, he is already on the offensive with a deadly trap. He reasons that his best chance of survival is not to run and hide, but to eliminate Zaroff. So how does this relate to us today? There are no Hunger Games or gladiator matches in existence, but we do see an arena where people can truly test their skill and minds against each other: online gaming. In the world of online gaming, specifically player versus player game modes, a human is matched up against another human. Usually there is one winner who, over the course of the match, outplays and out thinks the opponent. In the story, matching wits with another human gives Zaroff a psychological high, which may be why many video game players enjoy online player vs player games rather than against the preset computer.

An extraordinarily difficult poem to read, mostly because it's hard to to represent the repetition of the words meaningfully - especially "Bells" I imagine that Vincent Price or Peter Lorre might have done something better with it.

"Soil" by Roger McGough (read by Tom O'Bedlam)
Awareness of your own mortality is inversely proportional to how much life you think you have left. It eventually becomes an imposing presence lurking in the background. If you're lucky enough not to be ejected from this world prematurely , then eventually the youthful feeling of immortality will vanish. After that you will live with the constant awareness that you're going to die. It's the price you pay for consciousness. What comes as a surprise is that being old is just a later stage in life than being young. When young you're not on a different path from the old - you're on the same path. Youth thinks it has re-invented life. I particular it thinks it has re-invented sex. The truth is that young people aren't even good at sex - they haven't had enough practice. It causes them problems, they get little satisfaction out of it and they give little satisfaction to their partners. Young men think it's an Olympic athletic event - this a major mistake. Bigger, faster, harder? You'll never get another date. Satisfying, loving sex comes in middle age, if you haven't screwed up your life beyond repair by then. Or even in old age, if you're fortunate. Young people think sex is shocking to old people. Why should it be? Every old lady and gent has had more sex than they have. In fact the reverse is true. Old people aren't shocked that young people have sex, but the young are mightily shocked when they find out that older people do it. Healthy septuagenarians get more sex than teenagers. When growing older we gradually discover that being "shocked" doesn't mean what we fondly thought it meant. It means something like, "You'll find out that sex doesn't make you any happier or smarter. And doing it with many partners doesn't make it any better or make you a better person. Promiscuity doesn't even make you a better performer: all you learn is bad habits and silly charades. Later in life you'll wish you had kept it in your trousers and waited for love. I'm not shocked by what you do, I'm sad because I can't do anything to help you..." I'm feeling my own mortality, too. I've had most of the adventures I will ever have. The places I haven't visited I won't ever bother to visit. I don't expect to read many of the books I haven't read already. I can't see any good reason to ever buy another pair of shoes or a new tie. I don't even bother to find socks that match. My plan is to wake up tomorrow and keep on inflicting my "wisdom" on you and telling you stuff I think you ought to know. That is what old men do, right?
