A Timeline of American Classics

As a part of a project for school I was required to make a timeline. I figured that it would be a good idea to make this timeline about the dates in which several of American Literature’s most famous novels were published. One thing I noticed in this project was that I never realized exactly how new some of these books still are, especially when compared with famous stories like that of Shakespeare or the Classical Epics, like the Aeneid. I mean. Huck Finn was barely written over a hundred years ago, and The Good Earth was only written in the midst of the Depression. It’s very interesting to see how far American Literature has evolved in so short a time as in 150 years.
