Subject: Folklore and Mythology
How does Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' tie in various archetypes typical of European folklore?
Shakespeare draws on the tales of fairies/fae-driven folklore, including the Midsummer holiday itself when magical elements such as transfiguration and trickery enter the mortal realm. The Queen of the Fairies, who is not named in folklore, is named Titania - a reference to the daughters of the Titans in Greek mythology.
Subject: European History
How did the Crusades affect European life in the following ways: socially, politically, and economically?
Socially, the Crusades led to the concept of chivalry as knights departed for the Middle East, returning with stories of bravery and romantic adventure. Politically, the European countries faced little in-fighting as many feudal lords traveled outside of Europe; the feudal system eventually fell. Finally, the Crusades economically impacted Europe by opening up roads of trade with the Middle- and Far-East countries and their goods.
