This literature unit on the Puritan Era is the first in a series of the American Literary movements which includes: The Puritan Era, The Age of Reason, The Romantic Era, Transcendentalism, Realism, Harlem Renaissance, Modernism and Post Modernism. This particular unit begins by developing the schema - the arch of the major American literary movements - and then it provides historic background and the theological foundations of the Puritans which influenced their writings. It introduces the notable writers of the era, and provides readings for analysis. The guided notes pose the critical questions that the Puritans wrestled with, to the students, in a way that is relevant within our modern, everyday life.
