American literature truly found its own voice in the years 1820 to 1865. It was during this amazingly productive era that writers like Emerson, Hawthorne, Melville, Poe, and Thoreau wrote classics that would come to have an immense impact on the sensibilities of future Americans. American Literature from 1820 to 1865 examines this era and captures the spirit of the times, from Rip Van Winkle and Ishmael, to Natty Bumppo and Uncle Tom. Kit includes 7 lessons, 9 transparencies, student handouts, testing, vocabulary, projects, and more.
