history

As American colonists questioned British rule, public discussion focused on topics such as colonial independence and individual rights. In turn, literature from the American Revolutionary period often reflected important political and social themes, including national independence, personal liberty, and individualism. How does the literature of this period influence future generations of American literature? Where have you seen traces of these themes and how were they presented in the other literature you read?
