The British literature and the Saxons shared something the people adulated in their societies. From bards being respected by their skills to telling tales for many generations, to people having respect for nature as a personal teacher. Bards allowed the fallen heroes to become immortalized after death by the talent of telling stories about the heroes. The Middle Age literature was based on the corruption of the society. The Renaissance dealt with the Humanism and the importance of virtue to live life as best as the people could through the Bible.
