Periods and Movements

Tracing the evolution of literature through time scholars often group works from a certain time frame together and label it as a period or movement. This section of The Literature Network aims to dissect these movements for the better understanding of you, the reader. The movements or periods listed here where not mutually exclusive in their time frames, they overlap, liberally. In some cases a single author can even be claimed by more than one movement. Classifying art, an art in itself, often ends up more fluid like this. Each introduction includes a broad overview of the movement or period, examples of key works, and a list of major authors.
