 ITALIAN LANGUAGE AND LITERATURE   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
The rise of a literature, both written and spoken, in the vernacular began in the 13th century; a period of great political and civil revival in the Italian cities and a lively renaissance in art and culture after the difficult centuries following barbarian domination.
The prose of the 14th century was characterized by an explosion of religious literature, primarily aimed at the education and religious instruction of the people.
Italian culture and literature experienced a revival in the second half of the 18th century as a result of the spread of the ideals of the Enlightenment.

In the mind of the late eighteenth-century public, “literature” did not necessarily mean poetry or fiction: it was predominantly associated with discourses on religion, politics and philosophy.
Literature provided a common ground for authors and critics to come together from various points on the political spectrum and enjoy unprecedented social and political benefits through diverse literary undertakings.
Burke, again, wrote in 1796 that France was “in a state of complete sexual anarchy: prostitutes revered as goddesses, marriage reduced to the vilest concubinage.” The crisis of literature went deep and wide along with such social and cultural anxieties about the “defeminisation” of literature and the “demasculinisation” of manners.

 SUPERNATURAL HORROR IN LITERATURE (1927, 1933 - 1935) by H.P. Lovecraft
Touches of this transcendental fear are seen in classic literature, and there is evidence of its still greater emphasis in a ballad literature which paralleled the classic stream but vanished for lack of a written medium.
Yet such was the thirst of the age for those touches of strangeness and spectral antiquity which it reflects, that it was seriously received by the soundest readers and raised in spite of its intrinsic ineptness to a pedestal of lofty importance in literary history.
A very flourishing, though till recently quite hidden, branch of weird literature is that of the Jews, kept alive and nourished in obscurity by the sombre heritage of early Eastern magic, apocalyptic literature, and cabbalism.

 Theology Today: After the revolution: A review of mainline Protestant clergy leadership literature since the 1960s   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
The underlying structure of literature on the clergy since the 1950s reproduces in miniature the dichotomy of the great political and sociological debates between ancien regime Europe and postrevolutionary Europe.
Thus, whether the literature is celebratory or mournful of the passing of the old order and its model of the minister as professional, almost all of the literature since the 1960s takes the old order as its grounding point of reference.
After reviewing the literature, surveying both the original literature on the professional model and then the subsequent theological and academic reactions to its demise, I will propose some areas for further research and analysis that, because of the particular structure of the field, have been overlooked to date.

 The Norton Anthology of English Literature: The Romantic Age: Topic 2: Overview
In the context of British Romanticism, "Literary Gothicism" is a type of imitation medievalism.
When it was launched in the later eighteenth century, Gothicism featured accounts of terrifying experiences in ancient castles — experiences connected with subterranean dungeons, secret passageways, flickering lamps, screams, moans, bloody hands, ghosts, graveyards, and the rest.
The Gothic revival, which appeared in English gardens and architecture before it got into literature, was the work of a handful of visionaries, the most important of whom was Horace Walpole (1717–1797), novelist, letter writer, and son of the prime minister Sir Robert Walpole.

Two events will mark the Hebraic literature between 1880 and 1917: pogroms of Russia (1881...) and appearance of the movement of the Lovers of Sion with the political and cultural Zionism.
1917 mark a turning in the Hebraic literature: the revolution of October gives a brutal brake application to the emigration of the Jews of Russia, which had accelerated considerably since the pogroms of the end of the century, primarily towards the United States or Palestine.
The theatre was never a kind very in vogue; however the parts of Shoham, although drawing, they also, their inspiration in the Bible, made a deep impression because of the topicality of the selected topics and the talent of the author.

 Heath Anthology of American LiteraturePhilip Freneau - Author Page
There he taught himself to be a poet, mastering the techniques of satire in the paper wars against the other club, the Cliosophical Society, and the devices of polite literature in verse prepared for the commencement exercises.
Of more lasting consequence were “The Power of Fancy,” a personal testament to his devotion to imagination, and his commencement poem, a collaboration with Brackenridge, A Poem on the Rising Glory of America, which explored the myth of the westward course of empire and arts from the Old World to the New.
Freneau graduated in 1771 when the American market for literature was so undeveloped that no one could make a living from writing.

Before he was fifteen he had written verses, including lines to Whyte, himself a poet, the publication of which, in the 'Anthologia Hibernica' (October, 1793; February, March, and June, 1794), gained him a local reputation.

 Lynch, Dissertation Proposal
Recognizing the need to defend a fairly traditional brand of literary history from postmodern critiques, I suggest that histories that are neither materialist nor Foucauldian can still have important implications: that the history of historiography can tell us how an age constructed itself, how it used the past to authorize the present.
But my dissertation is not a reference work called "Samuel Johnson and the Renaissance," a catalogue of sources, analogues, and influences of interest only to Johnsonians, but an examination of the larger significance of the Renaissance in the literature of eighteenth-century England.
Milton, partly through Johnson's controversial account of his life and works, was instrumental in developing a historically grounded conception of literature, even as proto-Romantic bardolatry worked to turn Shakespeare into the genius who transcended history.
