Question Description

I’m stuck on a Social Science question and need an explanation.

1,Other than the perfection of the movable-type printing press and the work of Isaac Newton, what is an innovation/discovery/advancement from the 1500's. 1600's or 1700's that can be directly connected to our lives in the 21st Century?

How did that innovation/discovery/advancement effect/change the lives/thinking of people at that time - either for good or for bad?

How has that innovation/discovery/advancement evolved and what are those connections to today?

2,Fiero writes, "Neoclassical principles of pictorial balance, clarity and restraint gave way to dynamic composition, bold color and vigorous brushwork." Give an example of a work with this "dynamic composition." Explain your answer.

3,In chapter 29, Fiero writes about the Romantic style in art and music. How is this Romantic style a reflection of what was going on politically, socially and culturally at that time? How is this different than what was going on in the 1700's?

4, Read the selection from Frederick Douglass' My Bondage and My Freedom in Fiero. As per Fiero, "does moral responsibility alter according to the status of an individual?" Why or why not?

5,Read Shelley's "Ode to the West Wind" (Reading 27.2). As per Fiero, "How would you describe the function of color in the poem?" and "What does this poem reveal about the personality of the poet?"

6,Read from Thoreau's Walden in Fiero. What do you admire about what Thoreau was doing? Is there anything you don't admire? What would be difficult about Thoreau's adventure? What,if anything, would be freeing about his adventure?
