Write on one (1) of the following topics:

Topic 1:

Phedre illustrates the attitude of men toward women in the Age of Reason and political Absolutism, in which men represent logic, order, and strength while women represent emotions, weakness, and disorder. Using evidence from the play, discuss how Racine’s Phedre reinforces the stereotype of woman as a destructive force in nature, known as a femme fatale.

Topic 2:

Define “Baroque” and “Classicism.” Then, using these definitions, write a paper that contrasts the Baroque art of Bernini (e.g., “Ecstasy of St. Teresa,” in The Making of the West) with the Classicism of Poussin (e.g., “Discovery of Achilles on Skyros,” in The Making of the West). You might want to google other images by these artists to support your ideas.
