Literary Periods: Compare and Contrast
Compose a paragraph explaining how the myth of Icarus and Daedalus has been adapted in one or two different literary periods. You should include a claim, evidence, and commentary. I've linked a powerpoint presentation that contains brief information on the literary periods and slide 19 to 25 are the literary pieces. The pieces are representing the following periods:(Use this to help write the paragraph more easily) -Excerpt form Fahrenheit 451 by Bradbury; Contemporary -Icarus by Matisse; Modernist -"Landscape with the Fall of Icarus" by Williams; Contemporary -"Musee des Beaux Arts" by Auden; Modernist -"The Fall of Icarus" by Merry Joseph Blondel; Romantic -"Landscape with the Fall of Icarus" by Bruegel; Renaissance
