Many authors arose during the colonial period of America with an aim of becoming the society’s image through which they checked into their struggle for liberation. Literature also played a mouthpiece role to which the struggle was talked about in literature to the hearts of many (Ashcroft, Bill, Gareth Griffiths, & Helen Tiffin 45). America relied on its literature through prospecting authors who captured the historic moment that occurred during the colonial period. This has been a practical role of literature in telling historical stories generation after generation. The American literature grew more effectively as a replication of his colonial master whose literature already had a sense of identity, particularly in The English language.
