 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: English Literature
It is not unlikely that the written literature may have begun as early as the sixth century, but at any rate, by the middle of the seventh century the traces of it are clear in the work of Cædmon, according to the testimony of Bede.
It is the custom of historians of literature to divide the literary life of Chaucer into a French, an Italian, and an English period, according as his work was influenced by the manner of each national literature.
Yet it is to this acquaintance with Italy and its literature that we owe the revival of English poetry after its long relapse since the death of Chaucer.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Russian Language and Literature
To profane literature belong the "Testament" Vladimir Monomachus, written in 1099, in which its author gives a recital of his enterprises; and the celebrated account of the battle of Igor ("Slovo" or "Polku Igorevie"), which was found in 1795 in the library of Count Musin Pushkin.
It is a book of a moral character, in which are propounded the rules for living according to the precepts of the Faith and Christian piety, the duties of man as a member of the family, and the way to govern the home well and to care for domestic economy.
Russian literature lost its ecclesiastical character and assumed a lay form; and in ecclesiastical literature itself there was effected a transformation towards the modern, due to the reforms of Peter the Great.

 American Literature Lectures, Part I
With the Renaissance vogue of travel literature the writings of Smith are intimately connected; to Renaissance poetic models the poetry of Anne Bradstreet owes at least its form and probably its existence.
With unconcsious faithfulness this Puritan literature reflects the Puritan mind: its rigid Calvinism, its morbid consciousness of sin, its superstition, its austerity, its stoical bravery, its vein tenderness, its preference of morality to beauty, its contradictory tendencies toward orthodoxy and nonconformity.
Puritan literature is antique in manner and often in matter; yet it treats profoundly a few subjects of universal and permanent importance, such as the relation between church and state, and the source and functions of governmental sovereignty.

 The Project Gutenberg eBook of A Short Biographical Dictionary Of English Literature, by John W. Cousin.
The word "literature" is here used in a very wide sense, and this gives rise to considerable difficulty in drawing the line of exclusion.
There are very many writers whose claim to admission may reasonably be considered as good as that of some who have been included; but even had it been possible to discover all these, their inclusion would have swelled the work beyond its limits.
Perhaps his most valuable services to historical literature were his laying down the lines of the great Cambridge Modern History, and his collection of a library of 60,000 vols., which after his death was purchased by an American millionaire and presented to Lord Morley of Blackburn, who placed it in the University of Cambridge.

 Biography of William Shakespeare   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
Shakespeare is named as joint author with John Fletcher on the title-page of The Two Noble Kinsmen (1634), and with William Rowley on that of The Birth of Merlin (1662); there is no reason for rejecting the former ascription or for accepting the latter.
It was once supposed that Shakespeare came from Stratford—on-Avon with Venus and Adonis in his pocket; but it is more likely that both poems owe their origin to the comparative leisure afforded to playwrights and actors by the plague-period of 1592—1594.
The Shakespearian drama is magnificent and incoherent ; it belongs to the adolescence of literature, to a period before the instrument had been sharpened and polished, and made unerring in its touch upon the sources of laughter and of tears.

Yet to date, no single volume has brought together the full history of literature from poetry, fiction, essays, and autobiography that portray love between men.
While other anthologies have focused primarily on poetry, drama, or fiction, this volume is the first to include a full range of genres.
From Michael Bronski: It would be impossible to compile a complete survey of gay male literature; the very looseness of the definition of "gay" (not to mention the wealth of possible material) would overwhelm the project.

 The Teaching of History
The authentic chronicle treats of facts objectively, the novel is subjective and treats of the spirit of the age, its ideals and ideas.
The literature of the period should be studied and also some literature about the scenes and events of the period.
It is not an insuperable objection to Kenilworth that Scott has rearranged chronology to suit his story, that for instance he introduces Shakespeare as a well-known player and dramatist at a date when he was in reality an infant, or that he makes the death of Amy Robsart occur fifteen years too late.

The literature on the economics of population passed around this observation as a stream passes around a rock in the stream bed.
The most salient theoretical literature has been neo-classical growth theory from Solow in the 1950s until the 1980s, all of which (except for some work of Phelps) implied that more people reduce per capita con- sumption.
More specifically, I think work is needed on the relationship of population density to the availability of transportation and communication, and perhaps to health and educational services -- or more generally, studies of the relationship of population density to modernization.

 BBC - History - Charles II (1630 - 1685)
Charles II, as the oldest surviving son of Charles I, spent part of the English Civil War (1642-6) fighting on his father's behalf in the West of England, most notably at the Battle of Edgehill (1642).
Charles's reign also saw the rise of colonisation and trade in India, the East Indies and America (where the British captured New York from the Dutch in 1664), and the passage of Navigation Acts that secured Britain's future as a sea-power.
The king had a hedonistic character - he had numerous mistresses and illegitimate children, and loved racing and gambling - and this led to him having a considerable influence on Restoration art and literature.

 Roundheads, Whigs, and Decivilization: A Hoppean Analysis of Stuart England by Jason Jewell
Although in recent years the race/class/gender deconstructionism endemic in literature departments unfortunately has made some headway in the heretofore more sensible history departments, no overarching theory of history has yet arisen with the potential to replace the Whig Interpretation and sweep the field of its competitors.
Charles’ reign was marked by several catastrophes, including war, outbreak of plague, the Great Fire of London, and the formation of the first political parties; however, none of them was severe enough to bring about his downfall.
He died in 1685, leaving behind thirteen children; unfortunately, they were all illegitimate, and thus the succession devolved on his younger brother, who became James II.

 Bertin
Returning to Paris, his libertine life style may have been the reason that he was not accepted into the Academy until 1702.
In his monograph on Bertin Thierry Lefrancois identifies the present painting as that which the young artist submitted for the annual grand concours of the Academie and which gained him the first prize for painting in 1685 (see literature).
He further identifies a fl chalk drawing in a Paris collection as the premiere pensee for the composition and reproduces a study for the right foreground workman in the Orleans Musee des Beaux Arts which is inscribed Etude de N. Bertin pour son prix de Rome de 1686 (sic)

Allen Kelley recently reviewed the reviews, as well as the literature as a whole, for the American Economic Association's "official" Journal of Economic Literature.
He finds that the recent work converges at a position much like that of the 1986 NRC-NAS, and he adds the interpretation that "in a number of countries the impact of population was probably negligible, and in some it may have been positive" (1988, p.
