Online Timelines

Don’t forget our online literature timelines

and more

Use them for:

  • Starting a paper: Browse the timelines to get a broad idea of the historical and literary scope of a paper. The postcolonial and American timelines are ideal for getting a head start on the historical backdrop for Part II papers.
  • Choosing a dissertation topic: Use the timelines to explore less well known authors and to make connections between papers.
  • Revision: The timelines are particularly useful for Practical Criticism revision. They can fill out gaps in your contextual knowledge, put dates to names, and familiarise key authors, literary movements and groups.
