Analyze development of British literature
To successfully complete this unit, you must be able to critically analyze the development of British literature from the early Restoration period to the present. The early Restoration period was overshadowed by the development of the English essay, as evidenced by the early works of Richard Steele and Joseph Addison. The Spectator created a new form of British periodical writing that employed a detached observer’s viewpoint of human life and events. From the Spectator, the novel developed into a major artistic genre. Authors such as Daniel Defoe switched from journalism to fictional criminal lives.
The main types of literature in Britain are Latin, Anglo-Norman, and Cornish. Other categories include Scottish Gaelic and Manx literature. Some include works from Northern Ireland in their study of British literature. However, these are only examples of literature that emerged in Britain. To understand the development of British literature, you should be aware of some of its themes and genres. You should also be aware that British literature encompasses a diverse range of languages and genres.
