Journal: Create a very short story (5 7 sentences) that explains the character depicted. Think: Why is she sitting like this? What is the tone of the

picture? Make sure you use the same tone in your short story! DARK ROMANTICISM This is where it gets weird

As the second piece to the Romantic literary movement, Dark Romanticism explores the potential evil in the individual. CHARACTERS

Characters are fueled by anxiety and guilt. Characters are in psychological or physical torment. SETTINGS

Bleak or remote places Ominous (something bad is coming) Large, drafty old houses that have "been in the family for years."

PLOT Morbid or violent incidents A supernatural or otherworldly element is often present. (Think: ghosts, doors that open themselves, unexplained sounds, etc.)

GOTHIC ELEMENTS Grotesque, mysterious, desolate Atmosphere of mystery and suspense Omens, foreshadowing, and dreams Highly charged emotional states like: terror, a feeling that one is on the brink of insanity, anger, agitation, an exaggerated feeling of some impending doom, and obsessive love.

Words designed to evoke images of gloom and doom: dark, foreboding, forbidding, ghostly, etc. MAIN IDEAS Triumph of evil over good Inevitability of sin and guilt in humanity Perverse and self-destructive

nature of mankind Extremes of individualism What about this image makes it Dark Romantic? What about this image makes it Dark Romantic?

Henry Fuseli, The Nightmare One of the first painters to show the darkness

within the human subconsciou s. What about this image makes it Dark Romantic?

VIEW View The Life of Vincent Malloy by Tim Burton Reflection: How is Vincent an example of Dark Romanticism? Vincent Malloy

At the most remote end of the crypt there appeared another less spacious. Its walls had been lined with human remains piled to the vault overhead, in the fashion of the great catacombs of Paris. Three sides of this interior crypt were still ornamented in this manner. From the fourth the bones had been thrown down, and lay promiscuously upon the earth, forming at one point a mound of some size. Within the wall thus exposed by the displacing of the bones, we perceived a still interior recess, in depth about four feet, in width three, in height six or seven. It seemed to have been constructed for no especial use in itself, but formed merely

the interval between two of the colossal supports of the roof of the catacombs, and was backed by one of their circumscribing walls of solid granite. --Edgar Allan Poe The Cask of Amontillado
