Some Ways of Thinking about Literature and Authors

  • Regionally: authors from the Southeast, Southwest, British Islands
  • Thematically:  poems about death, love, nature, God, conflict
  • Temporally: short stories from the Harlam Renaissance, from World War I, from the Jazz Age
  • Demographically: black women poets, gay male novelists, feminist playwrights
  • Philosophically:  Existential authors, Beat novelists, Romantic poets, revolutionary writers

"this is one great thing that literature can do--it can make us identify with situations and people far away" Chinua Achebe
