Google NGRAM
This is a great tool that lets you discover culture evolutions by looking at the words used in books since 1500. Try to type in the search box the word Originality to see how it became important around during the romantic movement in the 19th century. Try typing the terms “Originality, Authenticity, Writer’s block, and Romantic” to see how they relate chronologically (make sure your selected time period is 1500-1999 so you get a wider look).
