The A to Z Challenge asks bloggers to post 26 articles on a themed topic. It’s supposed to be every day except Sundays during the month of April but I did this last year, found it way to busy for the likes of me, and decided to post mine ‘about’ once a month. Yes, it’ll take me a couple of years. Sigh.
My topic, like the last two times I did the conventional approach, will be writing genres.
American literature written during America’s early history and dealing with American culture from the colonial period through about 1820.
- Deal with Native American expressions and oral traditions.
- You might address slavery, Puritanism, transatlantic sentimentalism, or the role of religion in shaping culture.
- Being a sub-genre of historical fiction, it is grounded in facts with fiction to make it exciting.
- Depict American society and explore the American landscape.
- The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving
- The Leatherstocking Tales by James Fennimore Cooper
- The Power of Sympathy by Sarah Morton
