Here is a wonderful infographic that has been making rounds online during this week.This visual which is created by online-literature captures some of the major literary periods and movements from the medieval period stretching between 500 to 1500 to the post modernist era that started in the late sixties of last century and is still going on till today. This timeline also chronicles important events that marked the trajectory of literary history together with brief mentions of the popular authors in each of these eras (from Beowulf to Samuel Beckett).
