Let's see here. I have:
19th Century Art - Art History
The Tudor Dynasty - History
Body Image versus Reality - Women's Studies
Freedom of Greece - Classics
Poetry Writing - English Writing
Now, only one actually applies to my major, the rest are electives. I love electives. lol. You can probably tell I love history! Last year I had History of Ireland, wonderful class, though the History of Ireland is very sad. I imagine going through the Tudor Dynasty will be enraging at points. *shakes head*.
I feel as though, if we know our history, the history of countries, cultures, and people we're all better writers. Yes, we become better writers by reading, but how do we build worlds without knowing how ours work? Start wars without seeing how they begin? Form characters without knowing different personalities?
It's interesting when you have wonderful history classes. They will always make a comparison to the movies. Never are the movies accurate (mostly).
Elizabeth: The Golden Age:
They're all pretty faces! lol. Which is fine. This is entertainment. History is too, however, and if you have a good history teacher, he/she'll also be a good historian, an entertaining one and not make history so boring.
As my professor mentions movies that are historically accurate and wonderful, I'll tell you guys about them!
Ciao, I must write a free-verse poem.
