1. The author that inspired me the most was Dante Alighieri. This poem was the most inspiring for me because this shows many tales of redemption, that a sinner can overcome the evilness that has consumed their lives. I am excited by this tale because I am a sinner, I have not done as horrible things as the characters in this poem have done, but we can all overcome this temptation, no matter how horrible the sin. When Dante made his trip through hell and purgatory, I went on a trip with him, realizing my sin and being shown how I can be forgiven from these sins.
Two different, but similar journey’s The two stories Dante’s Inferno and Perceval and the Holy Grail were each a journey, but one stood out more significantly than the other. Dante’s inferno and Perceval and the Holy Grail had many similarities and differences although they were on different journeys in life. Dante’s Inferno was better than Perceval and the Holy Grail because Dante’s Inferno was about his journey to find himself, and Perceval and the Holy Grail was a journey to home for his mother. The similarities and differeiencies help to show the importance of the lessons and new ideas formed in each poems. The two epic similes had characters which were considered to be epic heros, however both were flawed.
Nearly all individuals are born with a strong sense of empathy; in fact, many can hardly tolerate the thought of killing or abusing others, even when dealing with enemies. Therefore, if an individual is going through adversity, another’s empathy will drive them into helping others to become resilient. In the non-fiction novel, Into Thin Air, author Jon Krakauer utilizes character motivation to develop the ideas of which an individual’s resilience is shaped by the compassion of others. Krakauer exemplifies the Adventure Consultants head guide, Rob Hall’s empathy towards Doug Hansen a couple times throughout the book. Towards the beginning of the book, Krakauer explains that it’s Doug’s second chance for success; which is only possible if it
Petrarch: Humanism Within Renaissance Art Francesco Petrarca, commonly anglicized as Petrarch, was an Italian scholar and poet in Renaissance Italy, who was one of the earliest humanists. He is often credited for initiating the 14th-century Renaissance due to his humanistic observations displayed in his many letters and sonnets composed during his lifetime. Because of his eagerness to rail against the conditions of his era through his poems and other written compositions, Petrarch is often considered the founder of Humanism. This philosophical system that emphasizes the value of humanity has been the driving force to improvisation of critical thinking throughout the ages. Many of these humanistic ideas that Petrarch conveyed throughout the beginning of the Renaissance not only inspired many modern idealisms, but also influenced many artists and poets to begin showcasing their unique pieces reflecting the overall form.
In his real life, Alighieri was highly vocal about political stances. Alighieri as a child excelled in his studies and offered much to the world of philosophy, yet preferred poetry to his studies. "Kind star or something better has given me that gift, I not abuse it.“ (Alighieri, Canto 26). Alighieri turned to poetry as his only emotional outlet, increasingly so after by the death of his lover, Beatrice Portinari. Alighieri had unforgiving tendencies regarding political stances, however, Dante was in most opposition against those in neutral parties.
The sonnet was an important part of Renaissance literature. After its invention, by Petrarch in Italy, the beloved poem form spread over Europe (Baldick para 1). Though every country adjusted the strict pattern to their own liking, the main form of the rather short fourteen line poem remained (Baldick para 4). Originally the sonnet was designed as love poems, which would later be elaborated to discuss several themes. Petrarch, as well as later, William Shakespeare and Sir Philip Sidney, wrote their sonnets in sequences.
Each character is strongly impacted and acts on the love that they have for others. As well, they both share the common trait of compassion. Oedipus is compassionate towards his people being impacted by the plague, and it is Orestes compassion that makes him contemplate killing his mother. A difference between the two is shown through their flaws, Oedipus is wise, but also at times arrogant, and Orestes is a man who feels abandoned. Within the stories both characters had very different motifs.
