Renaissance Writing

Shakespeare's writing reflect the ideas of humanism because he wrote about how humans are important.In the text it states that"Ever since,people have enjoyed the beauty of Shakespeare's language and his understanding of humanity"(Holt 317).This piece of evidence shows how he reflected the ideas of humanism. Shakespeare's writing attracted so many people because because it was entertaining and his plays were available for all types of people.In the text it states that"London adiences of the late 1500s and early 1600s packed the theatre to see them"(Holt 317).I chose this because it is telling why people were so attracted to his plays.In conclusion,those are the reasons why I think his writings reflect on humanism and why people were so attracted to his plays.
