In the comments to this blog post, please post your group's chapter summaries. One group is to summarize the social and historical context. The other is to identify the important works and authors of the period and explain their importance.
Use this blog space to create our class's history of English Literature. For this chapter, we need overviews of the following topics: major historical issues and trends, changes to the language, prominent genres, major authors and works. For each topic, we need to define the content and explain its importance. For example, we have to know that Chaucer existed but also why we still remember him.
