The Romantic period (1830 to 1870). Realism and Naturalism (1870 to 1910). The Modernist period (1910 to 1945). The Contemporary period (1945 to present).

The Age of Reason, or the Enlightenment, occurred in the 18th century in Europe and North America and birthed a new reverence for reason and scientific knowledge - rather than religion - as a means of understanding the world and our place in it. Because the Age of Reason held logic and rationality in such preeminence, the era produced mostly nonfiction, including poetry that dealt with reason. Many poets of the Enlightenment celebrated reason in their work, such as in Alexander Pope's "An Essay on Man," which denies divine intervention and declares the inherent goodness of nature, rather than some transcendent deity. Pope asks early in the poem, "Say first, of God above, or man below,, What can we reason, but from what we know?", placing the ultimate authority for knowledge, even knowledge of God, on human reason.

Yet while such a unit may be rigorous intellectually, it is arguably incomplete unless students tangle with the book’s emotional core. Clearly, those adults have ignored the lessons their English teachers once toiled to instill. It balloons into a broader discussion about the purpose of an English education. We want them to love books, but also to survive. We want them to read a lease in 10 years and know what they’re getting into.

American literature is literature written or produced in the United States of America and its preceding colonies (for specific discussions of poetry and theater, see Poetry of the United States and Theater in the United States). Before the founding of the United States, the British colonies on the eastern coast of the present-day United States were heavily influenced by English literature. Bryant wrote early romantic and nature-inspired poetry, which evolved away from their European origins. Cooper's Leatherstocking Tales about Natty Bumppo (which includes The Last of the Mohicans) were popular both in the new country and abroad. In the realm of African-American literature, Ralph Ellison's 1952 novel Invisible Man was instantly recognized as among the most powerful and important works of the immediate post-war years.

This exposition retraces the four distinct lessons early man derived from his intimate contact with nature as individual and as species. Nature taught man four archetypal lessons centered on omnipresent phenomena: camouflage, metamorphosis, the limits of life, and symbiosis. Abundant evidence for these modes of perception, imagination, and thinking is found in ancient and modern writing. This text describes each lesson nature taught man and explains how each is distinctly present in language, writing strategies, literature, poetics, and literary theories. Together, these modes compose the epistemology man has used over the millennia.
