Around the same time as Transcendentalism. Anti-Transcendentalism, however, could have been described as the true form of reality. Many authors may have felt a need to show the more Gothic side of this type of philosophy.

It could have emphasized war, diseases, natural disasters,murders, etc.[2] Authors may have written about worlds with dick or horrific scenes. These, examples of which include The Scarlet Letter. Pictures weren't actually true but could have been created during this time. Nathaniel Hawthorne, Herman Melville and Edgar Allan Poe are examples of influential Dark Romanticists.

Nathaniel Hawthorne wrote the Scarlet Letter as a example of anti-transcendentalism) He wrote this novel to portray the injustice in the punishments they decree. In the Scarlet Letter,// Hester was accused by the government for having another lover, so she was disgraced for the rest of her life by having to wear an A across her clothing at all times. By wearing it she has to bear the ridicule of her actions forever.
