    My answer !
    1. Because Roman Empire collapsed in the 6th century, Europe was attacked by barbarians who did not appreciate education, so the ancient Greek and Latin wanted to build again education, because through education most people educated and knew more literature.
    2. Because all kinds of writing were open to anyone who could read and then spread to the whole Europe. Therefore, the effect of developing of technology made many people discovered new world e.g. Columbus discovered America in 1492; Copernicus and Galileo later made important discoveries about the stars and planets; Ferdinand Magellan sailed all round the world. In a very short time the Renaissance was worldwide.
    3. –He began to be productive because the other two prominent dramatists—Kyd and Marlowe—had all died, leaving Shakespeare as a leading dramatist.
    – He had great depth of vision, linguistic power and scope of poetic expression. His plays show a gradual increase in dramatic ability and he became more and more skillful in handling plot-structure, characterization and language. The variety of his works eg. History, tragedies, comedy and late plays made him produced 37 plays.
    – He was able to satisfy an audience made up of people with very different educational and intellectual backgrounds because he produced the drama about the human lives especially about tragedy that we have known during this this time the dark ages was.

    4. – History.
    History talked about the role of the kings in England. All the kings made the change in England eg. Politic, power, religion and war
    – Tragedies
    Tragedies expressed the theme of human weakness and ambition. The power of the people just in the beginning, power couldn’t make of people enjoy till to the end of their lives.

    The comedy threatened and shaked the world, but the stories end happily. The author critiqued the
    – Late Plays
    Actually humans are fundamentally weak, but because the leaders have the power to keep everything promises happiness.
    So, the the different history, tragedy, comedy and late plays are the power, sadness, happiness and hero.

  4. Tiny’s Answers:

    1. The renaissance was called ‘revival’ of ancient Greek and Latin learning because the fall of Greek Empire of the 6th century, Europe was attacked by Barbarians who did not appreciate education. For 10 centuries they had a ‘dark ages’. After 1550, the renaissance produced an extraordinary amount of art, and the role of the artist differed from that in the middle ages.

    2. The invention of printing allowed many more people access to books, especially the Bible. At that time, the scholars could develop their writings and opened to the people who want to read their writings.

    3. Three major reasons why Shakespeare occupied a place of supreme importance in English literature:
    (1) He is generally considered to be both the greatest dramatist the world has ever known as well as the finest poet who has written in the English language.
    (2) He contributed greatly to the development of the English language through his great depth of vision, linguistic power. Many words and phrases from Shakespeare’s plays and poems have become part of our speech.
    (3) He was able to find universal human qualities and put them in a dramatic situation creating characters that are timeless with different educational and intellectual background. Yet he had the ability to create characters that are highly individual human beings.

    4. Four classified group of Shakespeare’s dramas:
    (1) History, in which he investigates ‘What is to be a king?’ Kings are humans with real strength and weakness. Popular plays of these types are Henry V, Henry, VI, Henry VIII, Julius Caesar, and Antony and Cleopatra.
    (2) Comedy, in which he presents serious subjects humorously. In the following comedies, Shakespeare threatens and shakes the world, but the stories end happily. Well known comedies of Shakespeare are As You Like it, The Twelfth Night, The Comedy of Errors, etc.
    (3) Tragedies, which express the theme of ‘human weakness and ambition (revenge, jealousy) will lead to disaster’. The ends are pessimistic; the hero dies and harmony is overturned. Well known tragedies of Shakespeare are Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet, King Lear, Othello, etc.
    (4) Romance, through which Shakespeare shows that humans are fundamentally weak, but since reconciliation exists and the hero does not die, everything promises happiness. Well known romances of Shakespeare are Pericles, The Winter tale, The Tempest, etc.

    1. Because Roman Empire collapsed in the 6th century, Europe was attacked by barbarians who do not value education. Since then, the European experience ‘dark ages’ for about 10 centuries, and because of learning ancient Greek and Latin in Europe which lasted from around 1500-1600.
    2. The printing press is very helpful development renaissance especially in terms of writing and reading that spread throughout Europe.
    3. First, when he started to become productive, the other two leading playwrights, Marlowe-have all died, leaving Shakespeare as a leading playwright. Secondly, he has a great depth of vision, linguistic power and scope of poetic expression.

Finally, he was able to satisfy the audience consists of people with intellectual and educational backgrounds are very different.
    4. History plays : In this drama, he follows the original tradition of English historical drama.
    Tragedies : He describes his life in the tragedy, and incorporate elements of philosophy and complex as one example of Romeo and Juliet.
    Comedy: Questions about the future harmony of the universe and ends happily.
    Late plays: Difficult to define, some of them considered serious comedy or play problem.

    Here are the answers sir:
    1. a.It called revival because when Roman Empire collapsed in the 6th century, Europe was attacked by barbarians who did not appreciate education.
    b. It took place from about 1500 to 1600, It took place in Europe since it is an intellectual movement which especially refers to the revival of ancient Greek and Latin learning in Europe.
    2. Printing significantly helped because of all kinds of writing could be read by everyone, and then which it spread to the whole Europe.
    3. a. When Shakespeare began to be productive, the other two prominent dramatists Kyd and Marlowe had died, leaving Shakespeare as a leading dramatist.

    c. Shakespeare was able to satisfy an audience made up of people with very different educational and intellectual backgrounds.
    4. a. History Plays: Where the drama was played based on stories from English history as described in Holinshed’s Chronicle. He followed the native tradition of English history plays but developed it much further than any earlier writers.
    b. Tragedies:It,s sometimes called black period. Little is known about Shakespeare’s own life, but it is known that he had a son, called Hamnet, who died at the age of 10 in 1596. This may have influenced Shakespeare’s black period, when many of his plays concern fathers and children.
    c. Comedies: The question of the future harmony of the universe. In the comedies, the world is threatened and shaken but a comedy always ends happily.
    d. Late Plays: It is considered between serious comedies or problem plays. Some critics prefer to call them pastoral comedies, but others also called them fables.

    1) Because, when Roman Empire collapsed in the 6th century, Europe was attacted by barbarians who did not appreciate education.
    *about 1500 to 1600; because it is an intellectual movement which especially refers to the revival of ancient Greek and Latin learning in Europe.

    2) Because, all kinds of writing were open to anyone who could read.

    3) First, when he began to be productive, the other two prominent dramatists-Kyd and Marlowe-had all died, leaving Shakespeare as a leading dramatist.
    Second, he had great depth of vision, linguistic power and scope of poetic expression. His plays show a gradual increase in dramatic ability and he became more and more skillful in handing plot-structure, characterization and language.
    Finally, he was able to satisfy an audience made up of people with very different educational and intellectual backgrounds.

    4) a. History Plays, the plays paint a panorama of England, embracing a wider social range than any previous historical drama, as the action moves from court to tavern, council-chamber to battlefield, city to country, archbishop and lord chief justice to whore and thief.
    b. Comedies, they tell the story of a prodigal son’s journey from youth to maturity and an old rogue’s art of surviving by means of jokes, tall tales and the art of being not only witty in himself but the cause that wit is in other men.
    c. Tragedies, they reveal the slow decline of a king who cannot escape his past, along with the precipitate demise of an impetuous young warrior (the hotly named Hotspur) who embodies both the glory and the futility of military heroism, and finally the heart-stopping dismissal of a substitute father.
    d. Late Plays, that in Shakespeare’s late plays wonder might “diminish” reason, offering the reader an alternative, intuitive route to knowledge. In response, this paper examines the epistemology of ceremony in each of the late plays, arguing that Shakespeare seeks to provoke intuitive understanding in his audience, through wonder, by staging marvels within ceremonies. The ritual is meant to awaken the audience’s minds and spirits and incite spiritual and ontological inquiry that can lead to the translation of their spiritual and ethical identities. Shakespeare uses the ceremonies within these plays, which are conducted with constructed, within-the-play audiences, to demonstrate or model the means by which ceremonial wonder might revitalize and awaken the understanding. Finally, by their emphasis on ceremonial knowledge, these late plays mark a shift in Shakespeare’s modus operandi, from deliberative rhetoric and disputatio in utramque partem to a more epideictic rhetoric.

    Good Night Mr. Parlin 🙂
    I want to write my answers about Renaissance Period here.

    1. Because the Barbarians have destroyed Roman Empire in the sixth century and Europe experienced a big lost. It happened from 1500 to 1600 and was began in Italy.

    2. because it really helped to spread the information that England is the most powerful country in the end of sixteenth century.

    3.
    a. Because Shakespeare is the prominent playwright even when his friends abandoned him
    b. Because Shakespeare had a big vision. He also mastered the linguistic and poetic expression
    c. Shakespeare also has the ability to entertain people although the audiences have different education backgrounds.

    4.
    a) History is the aggregate of past events. Shakespeare investigated much cases, the example is ‘What is to be a king?’
    b) Tragedies. Shakespeare expressed the theme of “human weakness and ambition will lead to disaster” like Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet, King Lear, Othello, etc.
    c) Comedy. Shakespeare presented some serious story but funny like As You Like it, The Twelfth Night, The Comedy of Errors, etc.
    d) ‘Late Plays’, It shows that people are powerless, but because a hero is not dead, then there is a hope of salvation.

    The differences are in the way to tell the drama, the meaning of drama, the purposes of drama it is shown to make happy, sad or strained.

    These are my answers sir.. Thank u and GB
