From printing to the steam engine (1439-1698). The arrival of movable type printing in Europe made books plentiful, and helped standardize the languages that used it. Much more survives from this period than from earlier.

Please note, that when we say steam engine we mean useful steam engine. Not Heron's first century toy, and not the store.

Notable works and authors from this time period include:

Tropes that originated in this time period:

 Chiron: Thou hast undone our mother.

Aaron: Villain, I have done thy mother.
