English literature

This article covers British literature in the English language. Anglo-Saxon Old English literature is included, and there is some discussion of Latin and Anglo-Norman literature, where literature in these languages relate to the early development of the English language and literature. There is also some brief discussion of major figures who wrote in Scots , but the main discussion is in the various Scottish literature articles. The article Literature in the other languages of Britain focuses on the literatures written in the other languages that are, and have been, used in Britain. Irish writers have played an important part in the development of literature in England and Scotland , but though the whole of Ireland was politically part of the United Kingdom between January and December , it can be controversial to describe Irish literature as British.

English literature , the body of written works produced in the English language by inhabitants of the British Isles including Ireland from the 7th century to the present day. The major literatures written in English outside the British Isles are treated separately under American literature , Australian literature , Canadian literature , and New Zealand literature. English literature has sometimes been stigmatized as insular. Yet in the Middle Ages the Old English literature of the subjugated Saxons was leavened by the Latin and Anglo-Norman writings , eminently foreign in origin, in which the churchmen and the Norman conquerors expressed themselves. From this combination emerged a flexible and subtle linguistic instrument exploited by Geoffrey Chaucer and brought to supreme application by William Shakespeare. During the Renaissance the renewed interest in Classical learning and values had an important effect on English literature, as on all the arts; and ideas of Augustan literary propriety in the 18th century and reverence in the 19th century for a less specific, though still selectively viewed, Classical antiquity continued to shape the literature.

English society comprises the group behaviour of the English people , and of collective social interactions, organisation and political attitudes in England. The social history of England evidences many social and societal changes over the history of England , from Anglo-Saxon England to the contemporary forces upon the Western world. These major social changes have both internally and in its relationship with other nations. The themes of social history include demographic history , labour history and the working class , women's history , family , the history of education in England , rural and agricultural history , urban history and industrialisation. The distant past does not offer much information on the structures of society, however, major changes in human behaviour make it likely that society must have changed dramatically. In common with much of Europe , the switch from the hunter-gatherer lifestyle to farming around BC must have heralded an enormous shift in all aspects of human life. Nobody knows what changes may have occurred, and recent evidence of permanent buildings and habitation from 3, years ago means that these may still have been gradual shifts.
