ENGLISH LITERATURE

,1.ELIZABETHAN AGE

This was the age from 1549-1602, the reign of Queen Elizabeth
This was the time when England was very rich and powerful. It established colonies all around the world. It was the period when the sun never set on the British Empire. As a result of this richness, all forms of art flourished. The country was every rich in its poetry, drama and philosophy.
In this age there were many great writers and thinkers such as Shakespeare, Francis bacon, Edmund Spencer etc.
In olden days poems were always associated with philosophy.



2.AUGUSTAN AGE

As the Britain Empire was flourishing, the country started getting a materialistic outlook. The importance for money increased. A general interest in nature did not exist. On the other hand nature was being abused and the people had lost all its respect for the very meaning of the word nature. The human mind’s general tendency was to start talking about unwanted and unnecessary things.
In this age “epic poems” were of prime importance.
[Epic poems: Long poems describing something noble and great]
John Dryden, Alexander pope and john Milton were some of the great personalities who have written epic poems.
[john Milton was famous for writing two epics in English: Paradise lost and Paradise regained]
Alexander pope and john Dryden were famous for satire.
Alexander pope glorifies coffee houses and the discovery of coffee.
