For every subject. I would like just a page double spaced. so six total. 

 

The Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci  is arguably the most famous painting in the world. What qualities make it so arresting? How does its use of color and, particularly, perspective differ from or improve upon earlier works like Masaccio's The Tribute Money or Botticelli's Birth of Venus? What distinguishes the Mona Lisa from contemporary works such as Raphael's School of Athens, which might be said to be more technically proficient? How does the painting use flowing lines in the background and in the figure to guide the viewer's eye and to unite the composition?

The Florentine scholar Petrarch was known as the "father of humanism" for his love of antiquity and his personal accomplishments. Among his achievements were his poems, written in a sonnet form that he perfected and to which he lent his name. Analyze Petrarch's Sonnet . What are the subject and tone of this poem? How does the structure of the poem enhance its meaning? What is significant about the personal and confessional nature of the poem? How do the strict rules of the sonnet form, combined with the self-reflective topic of the poem, capture the spirit of Renaissance humanism?. Why might Petrarch have chosen to write in the rigid sonnet form rather than a less-structured free verse style?

The Flemish painter Jan van Eyck was a master of oil painting. In his famous piece Marriage of Giovanni (?) Arnolfini and His Bride, van Eyck created an illusion of sumptuous fabrics and other materials. How did van Eyck use light, shadow, line, and color to achieve this affect? Why might a Renaissance audience have taken such delight in the visual reproduction of costly clothing and household objects? How does the visual texture in van Eyck's work compare with that of Pieter Brueghel the Elder and Hans Holbein the Younger ?

The plays of William Shakespeare are famous for their complex characters; many critics believe that no author before or after has so successfully captured the intricacies of human psychology. Analyze the soliloquies from Hamlet excerpted in the text. How does Shakespeare use these monologues to delineate Hamlet's character? How much room do the soliloquies leave actors and directors to put their twist on Hamlet's character? What character traits emerge from these soliloquies? How does Hamlet, as a hero, compare to Achilles or Gilgamesh, or to contemporary protagonists such as Don Quixote.

Rhythm is an integral part of poetry; it is one of the features that distinguishes poetry from prose. How is rhythm used in the Navajo Night Chant ? How does the experience of reading this poem aloud differ from reading it silently? Compare the rhythm of the poem to the literal meanings of its lines: Which seems to be more important in this piece, sound or sense? How does the rhythm of the chant compare to that of Tennyson's "Ulysses"?
