 Literature
Virginia is producing at last a literature both indigenous to its soil and imbuied with a realism that may be said to capture the major portion of the truth about its people and its civilization.
The Reconstruction literature of Virginia, however, which endured well into the twentieth century, was characterized by a nostalgia for the past and a romantic idealism that evaded facts.
Literature sustained a loss in 18o8 when John Daly Burk, a gallant young Irishman, was killed in a duel ten years after his coming to Virginia.

 OhioLINK ETD: Weaver, James
Focusing on the period 1835–1883, this dissertation examines how authors of nineteenth-century domestic American travel literature conceived of the relationships between ideas of the wilderness and of home.
While American travel literature as a broad field has garnered a large amount of critical attention in past decade, much of that focus has been on Americans traveling abroad.
In arguing that these works of domestic American travel literature redefine the wilderness as a potential home that carries both personal and national significances for these authors, I reveal the continuities not only between nineteenth-century conceptions of nature and home but also among the literary movements of the century.

 A History of Histories of German Literature, 1835-1914 by Anthony W. Rilley   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Batts defines a history of German literature as `a work that presents in a systematic and chronological fashion the entire record of German creative literature from the earliest times to the present.' 2.
But it is important to note that both Protestant and Catholic histories of literature were often written by teachers for use in secondary schools and/or for a general audience, that is, educated readers.
Thus, American literary historians assessed German literature `in terms of political and social forces'; an early American scholar `rejoices that he lives in a country ``where the liberty of the people is not dependent on the faith of princes.''...

You need to remind yourself, therefore, that with the exception of the stories of Karamzin in the 1790s, Russian literature from 1740 to 1830 was almost exclusively a literature of poetry.
Stimulated by developments abroad, especially in German and French literature, prose began to assert itself in Russia as an artistic medium on a par with poetry.
By the middle of the 1840s the pendulum had swung so far in the direction of prose that poetry was a sort of second-class artistic citizen for about fifty years.

 Editorial 1/2001: Global literature?
The beginning of internationally recognised Finnish literature came in 1835 with the Kalevala, an epic fashioned out of the poems collected from singers in the far north and east of rural Finland.
Sanctioned by Goethe's idea of world literature – a literature that would be the property not of individual nations, but of humanity – the Kalevala was rapidly translated, making its first appearance in French, for example, just six years after its publication in Finnish.
Even the country's one Nobel literature laureate, Frans Emil Sillanpää, who received the prize on the eve of the Soviet attack on Finland of 1939, is not exactly an international name.
