 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.

 Greatest Hungarian Poets
Latinizing of the culture after Hungary's conversion to Christianity delayed the rise of an indigenous literature, and the Hungarian language was first used to translate religious matter, the earliest known text originating around 1200.
From the mid-18th century to the 1848 War of Independence, literary growth was accelerated by the Enlightenment, romanticism, and opposition to the Habsburgs.
The scope of Hungarian literature was further expanded by the classicism of Mihaly Babits; the realistic fiction of Zsigmond MORICZ; the sophisticated plays of Ferenc MOLNAR; the fiction of Tibor DERY, Lajos Kassak, Gyula Krudy, and Laszlo Nemeth; and the poetry of Attila JOZSEF, Gyula Illyes, and Sandor Weores.

Bloomer, a woman of modest means and little education, nevertheless felt driven to work against social injustice and inequity -- and her personal convictions inspired countless other women to similar efforts.
Bloomer's newspaper, The Lily, began in 1849 in Seneca Falls, New York, where Bloomer lived after her marriage.
The newspaper was initially focused on temperance, but under the guidance of Elizabeth Cady Stanton, a contributor to the newspaper, the focus soon became the broad issues of women's rights.

 The Study of American Literature
By that, I don't mean the literature that Americans have written since Americans first existed-whether that is understood to be 1776, or 1607, or 1492, or the dawn of the Cenozoic era.
The phrase 'English Language and Literature' reflects the pamphlet entitled The Needs of the University, which Yale issued in 1871 to rescind its edict of 1828 and recommend the adoption of studies in science, history, and the modern languages.

SARTAIN in embarking on the undertaking, has been to make the work a Magazine of ART as well as of literature, and he will every month contribute not only the very best specimens of his own art, but will also superintend and direct the other illustrations.
I wanted to look at the popular middle class magazines of the 1840s because this was the decade when advancements in the technologies of reproduction, coupled with a rapidly-expanding reading audience, led to the proliferation of visual images in a medium (periodicals) that had largely relied on printed text prior to this time.
In January 1849, after Sartain purchased the magazine and moved it to Philadelphia, a new frontispiece appeared.

On January 23, 1849, Elizabeth Blackwell (1821-1910) received her M.D. from Geneva Medical College in Geneva, New York, the first such degree earned by a woman anywhere in the world.
She could either deny her femininity and gain some measure of respect as a physician in a male world, or be true to herself as an integral woman and lose a proportionate degree of the trust of her patients.
Her memory was still fresh when Blackwell arrived in Paris in 1849.

Her memory was still fresh when Elizabeth Blackwell arrived in Paris in 1849.
Yet it is generally conceded that Madeline Brés, who received her M.D. in Paris in 1875, was the first French woman physician.
Among the most outspoken promulgators of this view was Harvard Professor of Materia Medica Edward H. Clarke, who admitted freely that women had the right to study and practice medicine, but denied that they had the physical, mental, or emotional nature to exercise this right, especially at a certain time of the month (Clarke 1869).
