Renaissance (15th Century)
Transcript of Renaissance (15th Century)
Hamlet Literary Heroes The heroes of the Renaissance were kind, proper, well mannered, and highly respected by their peers. These characters influenced most of their society by how they acted, and from that, the people of that time period tried to act like them. These heroes were also known as noble citizens and honest gentlemen. One example of a hero in this time period is Don Quixote. He was honest, dignified, proud, and idealistic. Another example is Romeo. He was around many violent and mean people, but he was still brave, honest, mainly loving, and tries to be different from the rest of the citizens by being a gentleman and a hero to many. Common traits of heroes The citizens of the Renaissance thought of heroes as gentlemen that were courageous, respectful, and honest citizens that do good things. Most of the literature in the Renaissance comes from Greek and Roman literature where the first true heroes were written about. The people of the Renaissance's representation of a hero was not a heroic adventurer or a very powerful and strong person physically. The heroes of the Renaissance reflected upon the citizens of that time because it was the end of the dark ages, and people started believe in themselves instead of only their god, and that is why many writers wrote about the very noble, polite, and kind heroes. Another definition of their hero was a person that stood out from the big crowd , and did the right and noble thing instead of the bad and foolish things that the majority of the society did. Mostly all of the literature that was written and even now still base their pieces of literature from the Greek and Roman times.
