Question:

How does Shakespeare's view on revenge change from his very first play to his very last play?

Aryn P.
Answer:

Shakespeare's first play was "Titus Andronicus," a gory, over-the-top revenge play in which 35 people die by diverse means anywhere from execution by hanging to being baked into a pie and fed to their mother. Revenge is an eye for and eye and a tooth for a tooth, drawing blood to pay for blood that is drawn. Justice is swift and madness is swifter. However, in "The Tempest," widely accepted as Shakespeare's last play, forgiveness prevails in the end. Although much of the play is setting up Duke Prospero to take revenge on his backstabbing brother after awaiting twelve years for the opportunity, magic and young love intervene to convince Prospero to forgive the treacherous Antonio. While Shakespeare's instinct toward violent revenge remains throughout his plays, the mature playwright turns to forgiveness rather than forced cannibalism.

Question:

How are the Renaissance and Mannerist styles related?

Aryn P.
Answer:

Mannerism was a reaction against Renaissance idealization of the human form. Renaissance artists like Raphael created inhumanly perfect subjects. Mannerists like Parmagianino reacted against this style by overexaggerating the proportions so carefully calculated for perfection. Figures are shown in extreme poses charged with energy and emotion with elongated neck and figures and with exaggerated musculature that rejects the pristine and serene Renaissance style
