Which were the main features and main authors of the Augustan Era?



Augustan Era = Restoration = Age of Reason = Neoclassical Age
Writers in the Augustan Age tended to distrust the imagination and prefer to write within the limits of logic and common sense. The century was therefore also called ―The Age of Reason‖. The respect for the cities reached its height as a result of the new importance of the industry. Mountain scenery was considered boring by the writers. They had very little interest with the concerns of the individuals. The subject matter was always the life of their own times.
Authors:

  • – Alexander Pope (The Rape of the Lock, The Dunciad)
  • – John Dryden (The Hind and the Panther, Absalom and Achitophel, MacFlecknoe, The Wild Gallant)
  • – Jonathan Swift (Gulliver’s Travels, A Tail of a Tub)
