-In the [[United States]], the [[romantic]] [[gothic]] made an early appearance with [[Washington Irving]]'s ''[[The Legend of Sleepy Hollow|Legend of Sleepy Hollow]]'' (1820) and ''[[Rip Van Winkle]]'' (1819), followed from 1823 onwards by the fresh ''[[Leatherstocking Tales|Leatherstocking]]'' tales of [[James Fenimore Cooper]], with their emphasis on heroic simplicity and their fervent landscape descriptions of an already-exotic mythicized frontier peopled by "[[noble savage]]s", similar to the philosophical theory of [[Rousseau]], exemplified by [[Uncas]], from "[[The Last of the Mohicans]]". There are picturesque "local color" elements in Washington Irving's essays and especially his travel books. +Many depictions of Natty Bumppo and his adventures appear on film. Most used one of his nicknames, most often Hawkeye. In the [[The Last of the Mohicans (1992 film)|1992 film version]] of ''Last of the Mohicans'', Hawkeye's name was changed from Bumppo to Poe. Bumppo is also featured in the comic book series [[Jack of Fables]], along with Slue-Foot Sue, as trackers hired to capture other "Fables". Natty Bumppo is a member of the 18th century League assembled by [[Gulliver]] in [[The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen]] alongside [[Dr Syn]], [[Fanny Hill]], [[The Scarlet Pimpernel]] and [[Orlando (character)|Orlando]].
-[[Edgar Allan Poe]]'s tales of the macabre and his balladic poetry were more influential in France than at home, but the romantic American novel developed fully in [[Nathaniel Hawthorne]]'s atmosphere and melodrama. Later [[Transcendentalism|Transcendentalist]] writers such as [[Henry David Thoreau]] and [[Ralph Waldo Emerson]] still show elements of its influence, as does the romantic realism of [[Walt Whitman]]. But by the 1880s, [[psychological realism|psychological]] and [[social realism]] was competing with romanticism in the novel. The poetry which Americans wrote and read was all romantic until the 1920s: Poe and Hawthorne, as well as [[Henry Wadsworth Longfellow]].  
-==Poetry== 
-The poetry of [[Emily Dickinson]] – nearly unread in her own time – and [[Herman Melville]]'s novel ''[[Moby-Dick]]'' can be taken as epitomes of American Romantic literature, or, by interpreting their sometimes subversive subtexts, as successors to it. As elsewhere (England, Germany, France), literary Romanticism had its counterpart in American visual arts, most especially in the exaltation of untamed America found in the paintings of the [[Hudson River School]].  
-==Painting== 
-Painters like [[Thomas Cole]], [[Albert Bierstadt]] and [[Frederic Edwin Church]] and others often combined a sense of the sublime with underlying religious and philosophical themes. Thomas Cole's paintings feature strong narratives as in [[The Voyage of Life]] series painted in the early [[1840s]] that depict man trying to survive amidst an awesome and immense nature, from the cradle to the grave.
