Renaissance writing(William Shakespeare's)

Shakespeare’s influence on Renaissance culture was not simply a matter of incorporating works written in foreign languages and times past into his present. Shakespeare arguably invented a uniquely English version of the Renaissance, for he wove together the plots of ancient tragedies with the histories of medieval England so masterfully that it was difficult to disentangle them. Moreover, Shakespeare imbued some of his characters with a distinctly '‘medieval'’ way of reasoning. By making such logic seem antiquated, Shakespeare defined Renaissance modes of thought and their distance from the medieval past more persuasively.Shakespeare, influenced by humanism, reveals the values people of the Renaissance had.Renaissance humanism refers to the ideals of the cultural, social, and educational reforms undertaken by scholars, artists, and political leaders in Europe during the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. Renaissance humanism developed in response to the increasingly outdated and limited ideals of medieval scholasticism that had pervaded Europe throughout the previous several centuries. Instead of merely equipping professional such as doctors, lawyers, and theologians with the strict rules of practice for their professions, humanists sought to instill within the educated a strong sense of virtue and prudence through the close study of the humanities and particularly the arts of rhetoric, history, poetry, and philosophy. Humanism originated in Florence and Naples, Italy in the fourteenth century but began to spread throughout Europe in the early 16th century due to the large-scale printing and publication of classical and modern poetic, historic, rhetorical and philosophical texts.

William Shakespeare was an English poet, playwright, and actor, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's pre-eminent dramatist. He is often called England's national poet, and the "Bard of Avon". SHAKE SPEARE quote : A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool.
