Leonardo da Vinci
Leonardo da Vinci was born on April 15, 1452. When young Leonardo was taught many things, but most commonly mechanic, art, sculpting, or painting. When Leonardo painted the Monalisa, his most famous drawing, he was living in Florence. Sadly nobody noticed Leonardo as a mechanic but only as a artist. On May 2, 1519, Leonardo Da Vinci passed away always remembered by his artwork.
Michelangelo and his road to become a successful sculpture and artist.
Paper and Printing
Paper making started in China in the late 700s and factories started printing paper. When paper was invented, people could start writing and making literature better. Literature was translated from language to another. These writings helped people with literature and understanding.
Races: William Shakespeare's writing reflected the ideas of humanism. William put real life situations in his works. In the text it says "Shakespeare wrote more than 30 comedies, tragedies, and histories" (Holt 317). This evidence helps me how Shakespeare affected the ideas of humanism. A lot of people like Shakespeare's plays. Many people liked it because of the language on what he uses. In the text it states "Ever since, people have enjoyed the beauty of Shakespeare's language" (Holt 317). This supports my claim because that means everyone enjoyed his play. In conclusion many people liked Shakespeare's writing and plays.
