Don’t forget our online literature timelines
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.
