Outline of American Literature


Part of the U.S. Department of State's impressive International Information Programs, this incredibly detailed and scholarly Website presents an overview of American literature chronologically. It divides the topic into 10 chapters, from Early American and Colonial to Contemporary. Each section is richly detailed, but requires an upper-grade reading level. The excellent site is an excellent resource for educators preparing their lessons, and would also be suitable for students able to appreciate its incredible depth of information.
