shouldn't an english considerable know greater approximately this then the rest human beings? the only Renaissance stuff i will think of up is Shakespeare, and his artwork would not fairly matter huge form as a different. How approximately Machiavelli's "The Prince?" i like Dickens, yet that may no longer Renaissance. "Ivanhoe" (Sir Walter Scott) became into ok...somewhat dry perhaps, yet Robin Hood has a cameo...nevertheless, back, no longer Renaissance. R.L Stevenson's "The Black Arrow" is definitely one of my favs, nevertheless it extremely is have been given factors of romance in it and is desperate for the duration of the war of the Roses, it extremely is pre-Renaissance i think of. As for the classical era, all i will think of of is "The Illiad" or "The Odyssey." i've got been in the direction of the latter. this is totally long-winded. I actually have a novelized version it extremely is a little greater helpful. you will possibly desire to attempt Robinson Crusoe. it is not historic Greece, Rome, or Renaissance, yet a minimum of there is not any romance ;) digital mail me sometime...perhaps i will arise with something else.
