Literature of Colonial America


The writings of this period are accounts of European explorers, traders, and settlers
describing their adventures. Various different things were going on in America at this
time, and everyone's aspect of how things happened is what the writings are about. In
order to understand and engulf these pieces of literature, the reader needs to understand
how people were living, and what was going on in America. The English- speaking man and
the Indians had widely differing cultures that very much clashed and caused upsetting
problems. There were also many different people settling in America with a different
attitude on religion. Various different things contributed to the thoughts put into words,
which make up the works of the Colonial Period literature.

Columbus's Letter Describing His First Voyage is an important piece of writing that is a
part of history. It was Columbus's voyage that had united Europe and America. He
discovered so much territory that was unknown to the Europeans, and to have a written
account of his journey is an amazing part of history. It is an informing piece of writing
to read in order to understand the way Christopher Columbus is known to have discovered
the Americas.

The published works of Captain John Smith tells us the story of how Jamestown, Virginia
was established. John Smith told about his encounters with the Virginia Indians, and also
of himself being captured. That is where the myths of John Smith's tale of Pocahontas came
about. It may or may not be true, but maybe that is the fantasy that brings this writing
to life. True or untrue, it is a long-lived legend that everyone will hear about during
the course of his or her lifetime. To be able to read it allows someone to imagine in
their own fantasy the things he is describing in words. It is an enjoyable writing to
read, and I believe everyone should read it at least once.

There are two women writers from the Colonial Period who have forever imprinted their
names in the era of literature: Mary Rowlandson and Anne Bradstreet. Anne Bradstreet, to
begin, was the first notable poet in American literature. Her works were published without
her consent, and have been studied and critiqued ever since. In her poems she expresses
her thoughts on the pleasures of God, life, and especially family. There are two poems of
hers that I really enjoyed reading: To My Dear and Loving Husband and In Reference To Her
Children. When you read the first, you can see how sincere her love for her husband is.
There is nothing on Earth that could ever accurately express the love and passion she had
for him. In the latter, she wrote about her children and the life that they had together.
Reading the works of Anne Bradstreet you begin to appreciate the love she has for life,
and that spending her time writing about her times with her family is what she enjoyed. I
have come to realize the flowery, yet simple things in life are what matter most.

Mary Rowlandson set the footing for the adventure tale of the time. Her narrative about
getting captured by the Indians gives the view of how a Puritan would view the savage
lives of the "red-skins". Though the story was sort of long, it showed the accounts of how
Puritans were devoted to religion by her quotes of the bible. It should be read to get an
account of how people thought of the Indians as fiends.

The Literature of Reason and Revolution

This period is argued to be the most monumental of all time. It had astonishing advances
in science, religion, politics, and philosophy. This had a profound effect on people's
beliefs and the way they lived their lives. Two of the most influential gentlemen of this
period are Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson.

"The Alamanack became one of the most influential publications in American history, a
delight to generations of readers gratified by preachments on the virtues of hard work,
thrift, and resource." That quote sums up the way I thought when I read Benjamin
Franklin's FROM Poor Richard Improved. Today we all use the proverbs Franklin wrote. The
Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin is a lengthy selection to expect one to read. Though it
made way for the emergence of the autobiography to become a genre of its own.

Thomas Jefferson made an impact on politics during this time. The Declaration of
Independence was written and published, which was drafted by Jefferson. Students should
study the Declaration of Independence in order to understand the foundation of our

In reaction to his Impressionist contemporaries, whom he accused of "aiming too low", Redon sought to combine "human beauty with the nimbus of intellect". In creating such works as \'Closed Eyes\', \'The Birth of Venus\' and \'The Chariot of Apollo\', he unlocked the door to the invisible. Imbued with the music of Wagner, enraptured by the poetry of Edgar Allan Poe, Baudelaire, and Mallarmé, he lent express

At first I didnt realize that there was anything but love in all the works. Without the help of Mr. Johnson, I would have never thought that there was anything but love in most of the works. As I read the works again I realized that there was more in the works besides love. I found out that there were morals and values but I didnt notice it because of the fact that I didnt
