The Rennaissance, or "Age of Enlightenment", did not encourage a specific type of literature, however one of the most important aspects of the most reknowned writers of the ti…me is that they were largely Humanists. Poetry, letters, narratives,plays and essays were all popular forms of writing. The novel, as we know it, did not exist, perhaps the closes you can get to a novel from that era is Thomas More's Utopia, a two-part philosophical narrative which is mainly concerned with freedom of religion (More was a Catholic in England around the time Henry VIII formed the protestant Church of England, he was eventually executed for refusing to denounce his faith). Much of the humanist writing of this time was concerened with religion, corruption of rulers (read More's Utopia, Erasmus' The Praise of Folly, Shakespeare's King Lear, and Measure for Measure, Donne's Satyres). Largely there was also a huge movement that focussed on classical writings that had, hiterto, been ignored throughout the 'Dark Ages'. There was a revival of interest in the writings of Herodotus, Homer, Virgil, Cicero etc... Alongside that there is much literature about discoveries, both geographic and scientific (Shakespeare's The Tempest, Nashe's The Unfortunate Traveller etc...) There were many other writings, I would particulalry reccommend reading the poetry, essays and sermons of John Donne, see how he includes science and discovery, satire, classical poetic forms, criticism, crisis of faith and sex. Incidentally he was distantly related to Thomas More, but renounced his Catholicism at the behest of James I and became a Protestant priest.
In general terms, the literature of the Renaissance differed fromMedieval literature in its general spirit and typicalsubjects-of-focus. In respect to the former, it was vivac…ious,energetic, positive, even aggressive -- exuding confidence orcuriosity in some significant way -- by contrast with the morereserved, humble, contrite spirit of the preceding age.Subjects-of-focus for the Renaissance differed from Medievalliterature in that authors themselves were quite often featured,with their distinctive opinions and characteristics noted; at thesame time, this-worldly themes and tensions were prominent, bycontrast with the other-worldly or otherwise 'fantastic' themes ofthe previous age's writing.
Capitalizing the word literature into 'Literature' emphasizes its existence and importance and often refers to the collection of great literary works throughout history. You c…an obtain 'literature' in numerous settings, such as pamphlets at the dentist's office, magazines, owner's manuals, and textbooks.

The first word (Literature) has the first letter capitalised. The second word (literature) is entirely lower-case. There is no difference in the meaning of these words. At th…e start of a sentence, or in a title, the first letter of a word should be capitalised. Otherwise, the word literature is usually lower case, as it is not a proper noun.
This literature is unique to the area. It has a lot of influence from the culture that is there.
Mood is an emotion or feeling that a reader absorbs from a piece of literature. Since it is a literary element it must be described, it is wrong to use it simply as a noun.
