 Russian Literature - LoveToKnow Watches
The style of Russian literature which prevailed from the time of Lomonosov was wholly based upon the French or pseudo-classical school.
During the last generation of the 19th century most of the Titans of her literature departed, and cannot be said to have left successors of equal merit.
The foundation of the Little Russian literature (written, as opposed to the oral) was laid by Ivan Kotliarevskiy (1769-1838), whose travesty of part of the Aeneid enjoys great popularity among some of his countrymen.

Hence the fondness of the literature of the seventeenth century for general ideas and for sentiments that are common to mankind, and its success in those kinds of literature which are based on the general study of the human heart.
Hence the contempt of the seventeenth century literature for all that is relative, individual and mutable; in lyric poetry, which appeals primarily to the individual sentiment, in the description of material phenomena, and the external manifestations of nature, it falls short of success.
For thorough understanding of the development of French literature in the seventeenth century, we must consider it in three periods: (1) from the year 1600 to 1659, the period of preparation; (2) 1659-1688, the Golden Age of classicism; (3) 1688-1715, the period of transition between the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.

 Denmark - Culture - Literature
Ballads are the principal mediaeval literature in the vernacular.
The language and forms of baroque literature are characterised by impressive rhetorical inventiveness and power, and they reveal an appetite for life that measures up to its stark celebration of the inconstancy of fortune and the certainty of death.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Italian Literature   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-23)
This century in Italy, as elsewhere, is the golden age of vernacular ascetical and mystical literature, producing a rich harvest of translations from the Scriptures and the Fathers, of spiritual letters, sermons, and religious treatises no less remarkable for their fervour and unction than for their linguistic value.
Also in religious literature we have the ascetical letters of B. Giovanni Dominici (died 1419), a strenuous opponent of the pagan tendencies of the classical revival, and the vernacular sermons (1427) of St. Bernardine of Siena.
Political considerations colour most of the literature of the middle of the century, whether it be the historical writings of Cesare Balbo (1789-1853), the satirical and patriotic poems of Giuseppe Giusti (1809-50), the revolutionary lyrics of Gabriele Rossetti (1783-1854), the tragedies of Giovanbattista Niccolini (1782-1861), or the once admired romances of Francesco Domenico Guerrazzi (1804-73).

Celtic literature and the decorative techniques used in their manuscripts also influenced European literature, particularly epics and other poetry.
Although the stories and themes of this literature were rooted in the pre- Christian era, much of it was written down in the period after 814.
