It very well may be said that American Literature may have started in 1493 when Columbus composed his acclaimed letters to King Ferdinand of Spain. Different travellers and explorers, who followed, composed letters to their companions and family members at home. These 'letters home' mark the start of the put down account of the threats they needed to confront, yet in addition to the marvels that should have been seen all over. The interest was energized at home in light of these letters. The letters gave reasonable and striking records. An ever increasing number of individuals were enticed to cruise for the New World to settle there. Such courageous spirits came not from England alone, yet these spirits originated from most different nations of Europe-Spain, Portugal, France, Holland, and numerous others. Along these lines, there established the framework of the 'solidarity in decent variety' which is such a noticeable element of American culture.
