Italian Renaissance

The Renaissance

Before the Renaissance, Europe was in the dark ages.  Learning art and literature did not flourish.  Then once the fourteenth centruy hit, all of these things began to slowly but surely rebuild.  Artists such as RaphealTitian, and El Greco.  New forms of literature also began to show.  The sonnet is a new type of poem that was created during this time.  An example of this would be Marie De France.  She was a famous poet who lived in France and England during the late 12th century.  She was an excellent writer who wrote numerous works, including fables as well as love sonnets.  She was one of the greatest writers in history.
