Project #71544 - HUM ESSAY

 

Instructions:

For your FOUR-PAGE essay, you will choose ONE of the following major movements that we've studied in our course so far:

The Renaissance
The Enlightenment
Romanticism
Modernism
Existentialism

Choose ONE of the preceding movements and write a FOUR-PAGE essay tracing its social and political origins and development. What were the major themes?  How did the expression of these themes change over time, if at all? Who were the major contributing figures?

Think of this essay as an introduction to whichever topic you choose to someone who doesn't really know much about it. You're telling the story of the Renaissance or Existentialism or whichever of the topics you choose. 

For whichever movement you choose to write about, provide detailed analysis of the cultural works it produced. Your textbook includes plenty of examples of cultural works in the principal modes of artistic expression that we've studied so far: painting, sculpture, music, literature, theater, opera, architecture, etc. BE SPECIFIC! I want names, dates, places, etc. 

An example of how this analysis of cultural works would happen is as follows, using Romanticism as an example (you DO NOT need to choose Romanticism if you don't want to):

1. You write that a major theme of Romanticism was nature.
2. Then, you explain what the Romantics thought about nature. You also tell me the names of these Romantics.
3. Then, you analyze a specific painting (you'll probably have to analyze more than one cultural work) from the Romantic period that specifically deals with the theme of nature.
4. Then, you repeat this process with all the other themes of Romanticism that you can think of.

You DO NOT need to perform outside research for this assignment, but if you choose to, please adhere to MLA standards when citing your sources.
