The Age is called Neoclassical or Pseudo classical Age to mean the artificiality of the writers of this period. They imitated the ancient Greek and Roman literary tradition but lacked the originality of the writers of that period.


Main literary features of the Age:

1. The writers of the Age imitated the style of the ancient Greek and Roman writers.
2. Much attention is paid to technical perfection rather than innovation or natural genius.
3. Human beings are given most importance. The literary ideal of the age is “Art for art's sake”.
4. General rather than individual qualities of human beings are given more importance.
5. Sophisticated in thought and style is emphasized.


The Neoclassical Period comprises three shorter ages:

1.The Restoration Period  (1660-1700)
2. The Augustan Age (1702-1745)
3. The Age of Sensibility (1745-1785)
