Abstract: This paper shows some American Renaissance writers' insightful challenges to the American social change through their works. First, we investigate Emerson's and Whitman's acceptance of the spirit of times. Next, we consider the sense of alienation that Thoreau and Poe felt toward the society and people of those days and how they each tried to create their own visionary worlds. We also research Hawthorne's skepticism of the Puritan society. Finally, considering Melville's skepticism of the market society which caused the unequal distribution of wealth and social instability, we conclude that his skeptical speculation, synchronically and diachronically, should be very much valued in the literary world.
