American Literary Movements


In planning for this year I found a great site that gives a timeline for the literary movements as well as an explanation on each movement. Beneath the timeline you will find “literary movements.” If you click that link, you will be able to access a list of literary movements. Just thought I’d share.

Her are some more links I found useful:
Mr. Juster’s Virtual Classroom AND Literary Periods in American Literature- though rather archaic in design, these both have useful lists.

Here is another one titled Early American Literature Movements 1600-1900, Resources K-12.

    If you are looking for a site an in-depth approach to all the great works of English literature, you must visit Shmoop. It approaches each poem, play or novel from multiple perspectives and you are offered a social, political, historical as well as critical stand point to each one of them. All written in simple easy to understand language, Shmoop is also deliciously irreverent and should appeal to anyone with a sense of humor. Good stuff – have a look.
