Shakespeare Hamlet and Moliere Misanthrope Write a paper of approximately two pages (at least 500 words) discussing the change in the subject matter of literary works that take place through the
course of modernity.
What are early modern writers (such as Shakespeare and Molière) interested in and why? How does the focus of literature change? and when and why does this change occur? Does anything stay the same?
In addressing these questions, feel free to refer to the various historical events and social transformations we’ve mentioned in class. However, your
the discussion should be rooted in our texts.
