The Bengali Renaissance or simply Bengal Renaissance, was a cultural, social, intellectual and artistic movement in Bengal region in the eastern part of the Indian subcontinent during the period of the British Indian Empire, from the 19th century to the early 20th century dominated by Bengali Hindu community.

Historian Nitish Sengupta describes the Bengal Renaissance as taking place from Raja. Introduction. Inwhen Harvard scholar F. Matthiessen published American Renaissance: Art and Expression in the Age of Emerson and Whitman, he defined the canon for the period that many regard as the most important in American literary essen argued that, from tofive writers developed a distinctively American literature—“a literature for our democracy.

Literary naturalism, within the Hispanic context, has traditionally been read as a graphic realist school or movement linked predominantly to late nineteenth century literary production. The essays in Au Naturel: (Re)Reading Hispanic Naturalism—written by scholars from different generations, nationalities and ideological background.

Metahistory: The Historical Imagination in Nineteenth-Century Europe is a historiography book by Hayden White first published in In Metahistory, White rejects the notion that historians or journalists are able to write about the past or present as it actually happens. The first is, if you have already read a few books on the Renaissance you won't find much that is new here.

The second drawback is the lack of pictures- really inexcusable in a book of this kind. (That is probably the major reason why I went with 3 stars rather than 4.) The majority of the book deals with architecture, sculpture and painting.

The last question refers of course to F. Matthiessen's towering American Renaissance: Art and Expression in the Age of Emerson and Whitman (), a landmark critical work that almost single-handedly inserted American literature into a twentieth-century university setting and completed a process of national canon formation that had begun in.
