As the world around us changes, so does the way that we see the world, and express that vision. Literature, arts, and philosophy evolve to mirror their historic and social context. An appreciation of literature is grounded by an understanding of the work’s context. Looking at the literary movements helps students articulate the common approach and ideas of each movement and time period. It is important for students of British Literature to understand the author and characters’ attitudes. Connecting a piece of writing to the ideologies of its time is an significant component in this task.
