That being “said”… </li></ul><ul><li>Broadly defined, literary movements are trends within historical periods in which literature (fiction, non-fiction, poetry, etc.) is unified by shared intellectual, linguistic, religious, and artistic influences . </li></ul><ul><li>Critics refer often to literary movements, citing different movements that have developed in literature and then been replaced by some other movement. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Thesis Development <ul><li>Given : Literature produced during a defined American Literary Movement is representative of that literary movement. (Consider your assigned movement—in my case Pre-Colonial/Native Lit .) </li></ul><ul><li>Question : How is a work of literature produced during the Pre-Colonial/Native Lit Movement representative of that period of literature? </li></ul><ul><li>Thesis Statement : The myths, legends, rituals and songs produced prior to the colonization of North America is representative of that period in American history, and by extension, the Pre-Colonial/Native Literary Movement. </li></ul>
