English Language; Historic Overview

The history of English Language goes behind to the Anglo Saxon era, roughly 5th century AD. Since then we have a complete history of hoe it originated as well as how it developed. It is pertinent to mention here that the root system of every language is "poetry" and out of it different genres of literature emerge. The same is true for English as its old versions are accessible in the form of poetry.
Certain events in the world history mark various uplifts regarding the development of English language. Among many, the most important are Norman Conquest, Medieval Period, Augustus Age, Victorian Age, Romanticism etc.
What we have today in English, distinct genres with innumerable literary pieces of works, is the result of acute development the English language passed through over the period of centuries.
