Literature , in its broadest sense, is any single body of written works. More restrictively, it is writing considered as an art form, or any single writing deemed to have artistic or intellectual value, often due to deploying language in ways that differ from ordinary usage. Its Latin root literatura / litteratura (derived itself from littera : letter or handwriting ) was used to refer to all written accounts, though contemporary definitions extend the term to include texts that are spoken or sung ( oral literature ). Literature can be classified according to whether it is fiction or non-fiction and whether it is poetry or prose ; it can be further distinguished according to major forms such as the novel , short story or drama ; and works are often categorized according to historical periods or their adherence to certain aesthetic features or expectations ( genre ).

The concept has changed meaning over time: nowadays it can broaden to have non-written verbal art forms, and thus it is difficult to agree on its origin, which can be paired with that of language or writing itself. Developments in print technology have allowed an evergrowing distribution and proliferation of written works, culminating in electronic literature.

    There have been various attempts to define "literature". [1] Simon and Delyse Ryan begin their attempt to answer the question "What is Literature?" with the observation:

    A book is a set of written, printed, illustrated, or blank sheets, made of paper , parchment , or other materials, fastened together to hinge at one side, with text and/or images printed in ink. A single sheet within a book is a leaf , and each side of a leaf is a page. A set of text-filled or illustrated pages produced in electronic format is known as an electronic book, or e-book.

    Books may also refer to works of literature , or a main division of such a work. In library and information science , a book is called a monograph , to distinguish it from serial periodicals such as magazines , journals , or newspapers. The body of all written works including books is literature. In novels and sometimes other types of books (for example, biographies), a book may be divided into several large sections, also called books (Book 1, Book 2, Book 3, and so on). An avid reader of books is a bibliophile or colloquially, "bookworm".

    Etymology. The word book comes from Old English "bōc", which in turn comes from the Germanic root "*bōk-", cognate to "beech". Similarly, in Slavic languages (for.

    Mainly it begins when England as a country was formed.It begins frm thr. England was formed when 3 ethnic groups came and settled down in the region whose names go something like Angles, Saxons and Juts or something. Then it became a country. English s origin is also somewhat confusing. The different communities had different languages and it got all mixed up ending in the formation of English. Something like tht happened. Then mostly i think ppl came frm areas like Denmark. Thts why old English is damn difficult to be followed by ppl who know modern English. Cos its got words frm Danish, Scandinavian and all. In old English very few books are thr with me. But thr s one famous book named "From Beowulf to Johnson". After that medieval English period came. Medieval English has a very famous author named Geoffrey Chaucer. His book s name is "The Canterbury tales". This English has a lot of French words mixed in. Its somewhat understandable. Then came the period called The Renaissance. During this period Edmund Spenser and Shakespeare were famous. Then Puritan period came. During this period censorship kinda things were very famous. Then Restoration, 18th century literature, Romantic period, Victorian Period and Modern Literature followed one after the other.

    On top of that, whenever you want to look up something you don t understand in Norton, just google it, or else check http://www.wikipedia.org. Another good search engine is Dogpile. http://www.dogpile.com/ As for your other question about meter (I accidentally deleted my answer there, nvm how), meter is determined by identifying when a syllable is being pronounced loudly rather than softly. The example given to you by that other guy about the beer is problematic because I would scan that line differently. This may help: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meter_(poetry) For this question, this google search I did on "history of english literature" looks promising: http://www.google.com.sg/search?q=history+of+english+literature&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

    What year are you in..? 12 or 13? I did English literature and Classics (ancient History basically) It depends what your skills are. If you are a literature person, and don t like memorizing chunkss of info about wars - I would go with English literature For year 12 - I did the Great Gatsby, Birdsong, 3 of John Keats poetry, and about 11 poems by W.H Auden. For coursework, we had to do two plays; Othello and The Duchess of Malfi Year 13 - we will be doing one critical essay on a topic such as symbolism or marxism, and one compare and contrast essay - you pick the books yourself and read them in your own time. In class, we are doing an Austen and Thomas Hardy book for the exam. A lot of my friends took history and they said the work load is very hard and a lot of stuff tomemorize. Personally I can memorizee booklets and stuff easily, but history is just not for me. If you are creative and like poetry, books and plays then go for English literature.. I wouldn t just pick one randomly. Do what you like the most and the one you think you will do best in.

    The Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts & Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects (“the standards”) represent the next generation of K–12 standards designed to prepare all students for success in college, career, and life by the time they graduate from high school.

    The Common Core asks students to read stories and literature, as well as more complex texts that provide facts and background knowledge in areas such as science and social studies. Students will be challenged and asked questions that push them to refer back to what they’ve read. This stresses critical-thinking, problem-solving, and analytical skills that are required for success in college, career, and life.
