 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Hungarian Literature
Hungarian literature, a markedly national product, was always in closest contact with the historical development of the people, and accordingly may be divided into five periods.
Culture and literature were suddenly brought to a standstill by the invasion of the Turks and the consequent devastation of bishoprics, monasteries, and schools, and later through the divisions and confusion of the Reformation.
Since the prevalence of modern infidelity, looseness of morals, and class feuds, Hungarian literature is abandoning its ancient ideals of patriotism, religion, and moral earnestness, and imitates the fashionable French and German writers.

 Realism in American Literature
Put rather too simplistically, one rough distinction made by critics is that realism espousing a deterministic philosophy and focusing on the lower classes is considered naturalism.
In American literature, the term "realism" encompasses the period of time from the Civil War to the turn of the century during which William Dean Howells, Rebecca Harding Davis, Henry James, Mark Twain, and others wrote fiction devoted to accurate representation and an exploration of American lives in various contexts.
As the United States grew rapidly after the Civil War, the increasing rates of democracy and literacy, the rapid growth in industrialism and urbanization, an expanding population base due to immigration, and a relative rise in middle-class affluence provided a fertile literary environment for readers interested in understanding these rapid shifts in culture.

 Reader's Companion to American History - -I. American Literature to 1860   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
Colonial America was in fact very much a culture of the book, but for more than a century after the founding, especially in New England, the books were overwhelmingly religious, and the values the postromantic age would associate with literary production—originality, individual voice, the adversarial imagination—were incomprehensible at best or versions of heresy at worst.
If we take the view that literature is the record of experience formulated within the terms made available by the culture, then all these writings—however occasional or restricted by the generic conventions of their mainly religious function—constitute literature.
This was the debate in which Emerson climaxed with his American Scholar address to the Harvard Phi Beta Kappa chapter in 1837, and despite all the literary ferment that had preceded him, he was right to announce—in Nature (1836)—that a new age was at hand.

 Consumerism and American Girls' Literature, 1860—1940 - Cambridge University Press   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
In Consumerism and American Girls’ Literature, Peter Stoneley looks at how women fictionalised for the girl reader the ways of achieving a powerful social and cultural presence.
He explores why and how a scenario of ‘buying into womanhood’ became, between 1860 and 1940, one of the nation’s central allegories, one of its favourite means of negotiating social change.
From Jo March to Nancy Drew, girls’ fiction operated in dynamic relation to consumerism, performing a series of otherwise awkward manoeuvres: between country and metropolis, uncouth and unspoilt, modern and anti-modern.

 Fyodor Dostoevsky - Literature Vault - Classic Authors and Literature Online!
In 1860, he returned to St. Petersburg, where he ran a series of unsuccessful literary journals with his older brother Mikhail.
His work is sometimes characterized as «polyphonic»: unlike other novelists, Dostoevsky is free from «single vision», and although many writers have described situations from various angles, only Dostoevsky has engendered fully dramatic novels of ideas where conflicting views and characters are left to develop even unto unbearable crescendo.
By common critical consensus one among the handful of universal world authors, along with Dante, Shakesperare, Cervantes, Proust and a few others, Dostoevsky has decisively influenced the 20th century literature, existentialism and expressionism in particular.
