American Literature Guide is a comprehensive reference app for students studying American literature in high school or college. The American literary tradition is broken down into the periods of Puritanism, Rationalism, Romanticism, Dark Romanticism, Transcendentalism, Realism, Naturalism, Modernism, and Postmodernism. Each period is analyzed and explained from six different perspectives: literary attributes, major writers, musical influences, artistic influences, historical significance, and a thorough analysis of one period piece.
American Literature Guide is content rich with high-level instructional text, high-resolution images, and links to musical references. Students can explore the biographies and works of major authors within each literary tradition, and by clicking "Analysis" students can see the attributes of each literary period in action as one piece of literature from that category is fully analyzed, annotated, and explained:
1. "Upon the Burning of our House" - Anne Bradstreet
2. "The Declaration of Independence" - Thomas Jefferson
3. "To a Waterfowl" - William Cullen Bryant
4. "The Raven" - Edgar Allan Poe
5. "Nature" - Ralph Waldo Emerson
6. "Richard Cory" - Edwin Arlington Robinson
7. "A Man Said to the Universe" - Stephen Crane
8. "Mowing" - Robert Frost
9. "Lost in the Funhouse" - John Barth
American Literature Guide is suitable for classroom projection from an iPad and functions equally well all recent versions of iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. American Literature Guide was written and developed by a college English professor and is appropriate for all levels from secondary through graduate-level academics.

Ratings and Reviews
This app includes history, art, and music within the realm of literature. I use this app as an instructional aid in class. My students can either take notes or purchase the app. The content is solid and concise enough for students to read and benefit.
Thanks for the update. So good
Great... But not
The app is almost perfect. The swipe doesn't work after you move it down then you need to reboot the app. Terrible for a paid app!
