Rediscovering the Past (Greek and Rome)

Greek and Roman classical ideas help shape the development of the Renaissance. There ideas inspired the Renaissance with art, and literature. "Renaissance artists and architects were still around. Roman ruins could still be found throughout Italy. Fine classical statues were still on display. Throughout the Renaissance, artists studies these ancient statues and tried to make their work look similar to them."(document 3)

William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare's writing reflected the idea of humanism, because he brought people together. Williams plays were in English, so even the riches and the poorest people would come together. And since humanism was for all people, it brought them together." The following passage reflected the Renaissance idea that each human being is important.(holt 317). Shakespeare's writing brought so many people because 1, his plays were in English, and 2, they were funny, dramatic, sad, and heart racing." Late 1500's and early 1600's packed the theater to see him. Ever since people have enjoyed the beauty of Shakespeare's language and his understanding of humanity(Holt 317). So the people would love to see his plays, and William brought everyone together.
